`Fear urged him to go back, but growth drove him on...`
Set in the frozen forests of the Yukon Territory, Canada, during the Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890s, `White Fang' tells the story of a young wolf-dog's journey from the wild into human territory. As White Fang learns that civilisation is every bit as vicious and violent as nature - and that survival is only awarded to the fittest - we too see how instinct, sensation and emotion drive every one of us.
Published in 1906 to wide and instant acclaim, this is a remarkable and moving look at the timeless relationship between man and dog.
