A classic animal story set in the harsh and desolate wastelands of the north where the only rule is kill for survival or be killed and eaten yourself. Here White Fang, half-dog, half-wolf is born – the only cub of the litter to survive. The wolf pack are starving and so too are the humans who live alongside them. White Fang has to learn the brutal laws of nature and whether he can trust humans – or not. As the author of another great animal classic, Watership Down, Richard Adams explains the influence White Fang had on him.
Born in the wilds of the freezing cold Yukon, White Fang - half-dog, half-wolf - is the only animal in the litter to survive. He soon learns the harsh laws of nature, yet buried deep inside him are the distant memories of affection and love. Will this fiercely independent creature of the wild learn to trust man again?
