Jack London’s tales are more than epics of hardship and survival—they are morality plays in which good wins over evil.

In the desolate, frozen wilds of northwest Canada, a wolf cub finds himself the sole survivor of his litter. Son of Kiche, half-wolf, half-dog, and the ageing wolf One Eye, he is thrust into a savage world where each day renews the struggle of survival. It is a lonely but noble life—until the day he is captured by dog-driving men. The cruel mistreatment he bears in this new life of slavery teaches him to hate.

Only one man sees beyond the rage of White Fang to his intelligence and dignity. Only one has the courage to offer the killer a new life. But can his kindness reach the heart of White Fang?

Praise

“Offers a strong and powerful narration by John Lee…As he brings every word to life, his enunciation is clear and his tone impassioned. He transports listeners to the desolate North…Simply stunning. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile

“Snow muffles the landscape in this companion to The Call of the Wild: ‘Dark spruce forest frowned on either side the frozen waterway. The trees had been stripped by a recent wind of their white covering of frost, and they seemed to lean toward each other, black and ominous in the fading light.’” New York Times

“In sheer force of delineation, passionate feeling for the wilderness and for the things that live in it, The Call of the Wild is quite unsurpassed in American writing. It is fully matched in both these respects by White Fang...wonderfully convincing. No stronger piece of work in this field has appeared.” New York Independent

Author Bio
Jack London

Jack London (1876–1916) was an American author, journalist, and social activist. Before making a living at his writing, he spent time as an oyster pirate, a sailor, a cannery worker, a gold miner, and a journalist. He was a pioneer in the then-burgeoning world of commercial magazine fiction and was one of the first fiction writers to obtain worldwide celebrity and a large fortune from his fiction writing. He is best known for his novels The Call of the Wild and White Fang, both set during the Klondike gold rush, as well as the short stories “To Build a Fire,” “An Odyssey of the North,” and “Love of Life.”  He also wrote of the South Pacific in such stories as “The Pearls of Parlay” and “The Heathen.” He was a passionate advocate of unionization, socialism, and the rights of workers and wrote several powerful works dealing with these topics, including The Iron Heel, The People of the Abyss, and The War of the Classes.
