Publisher's Summary

White Fang, a wolf born in a litter full of puppies, learned the rules of nature from his mother, Kiche. She taught him about meat, predators, and survival - but not about his greatest and least predictable adversary - man. When the cruel Indian Gray Beaver captures him, White Fang is separated from his mother and forced to fight other camp dogs to survive. But things get even worse when Gray Beaver sells him to the cowardly Beauty Smith, who trains White Fang to hate by destroying other dogs in his pen. As his memories of Kiche and the laws she taught him fade, White Fang becomes little more than a vicious animal, but still yearns for the freedom of his early life.

Pulled into the WILD by romantic pen of London

I absolutely love the prose of Jack London. I wonder exactly how many people have died, pulled North to the Wild by the romantic pen of Jack London. I finished a while back and was crying as I listened to it with my kids.

Norman Dietz did an OK job narrating, but his stretched sonorant vowels kinda drove me nutty after awhile. I didn't have the dedication or endurance to listen to long stretches of Dietz describe the frooooooont and reeeaaaaaar of London's cooooold siiiiiiilent landscaaaaaaaaaaaaaapes.

I love Norman Dietz as a narrator!

If you could sum up White Fang in three words, what would they be?

Real, honest, adventure

What was one of the most memorable moments of White Fang?

When the California man stops the dog fight and "buys" White Fang!

What about Norman Dietz’s performance did you like?

He is my all time favorite narrator, I search out the books he reads. He is very talented!

Classic Story

Jack London was a famous author so there should not be any doubt about the contents. Story was great. The audio was easy to listen to and I liked it a lot. There is nothing negative to say about this audio book.
