“White Fang” starts out with 2 men and a group of 6 sled dogs traveling across the Arctic with a dead man in a coffin. This group was followed by a pack of famished wolves. Each night a female half wolf half dog would seduce a dog away and allow the pack to kill him. This killing of the dogs lasted until there were 3 dogs remaining. One man tried to save a 4th dog that was being killed by the wolves and ended up getting killed also. From then on the wolves closed in on the camp of the remaining man and 2 dogs.

Just as the fire, that was keeping the wolves away, on the camp burned low a rescue party came and saved the man and the 2 dogs from being eaten. After departing the pack came upon an 800 lb. bull moose. From there the pack split up to mate 3 wolves followed by the half-wolf half-dog or the she-wolf. The 3 wolves fought and One-eye, an old fighting wolf, won and won the rights to the she-wolf.

The she-wolf gave birth to 5 wolf pups. The only one to survive was a spunky cub named White Fang. White Fang became a pet of the Indians. He moved with the Indians everywhere they traveled, yet he still heard the call of the wild. They cherished him as he became a great fighter, fighting dogs. He became wise and learned many tricks. His value to them was priceless except a man named Beauty Smith found a way to buy him through liquor. Beauty Smith used White Fang as a valuable fighter.

He arranged fights and took in bets on them. White Fang whipped everybody he fought until he fought a pit bull. The pitbull had White Fang by the neck and was slowly going in to open the jugular. Then a man named Weedon Scott punched Beauty Smith and pried the pitbull’s teeth off of White Fang’s neck. Scott started to love White Fang and pet him. White Fang was afraid at first that Scott would hurt him.

White Fang came to love Scott. White Fang even got sick and wouldn’t eat when Scott left once. Scott was going to leave a second time but White White Fang jumped through a window and Scott took him with him to his home in the Sierra Vista. Scott’s dad was a judge and a man named Jim Hall was going to kill Judge Scott. White Fang sensed an intruder in the house and killed him. White Fang was shot but recovered and lived the rest of his days in the Sierra Vista.
