White Fang

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Jack London

Narrated By: Mark F. Smith

Publisher: LibriVox

Date: January 2012

Duration: 7 hours 46 minutes

Summary:

When White Fang is birthed in a cave to a wolf sire and a wolf/dog halfbreed dam, he is heir to two traditions. At first he is content to explore and learn laws of the Wild. But then his mother is caught and held by old memories of a past relationship with Man, and White Fang follows her into service with the Indians. Life among sled dogs is hardly less cruel and dangerous than living in the Wild, but brutality notches upward when his drunken master sells him to a nasty, twisted hanger-on at a riverside town of white men. He is stripped of everything soft and gentle when forced to fight to the death for a crowd of bettors.

Taming this savage spirit and reclaiming the nobility within looks impossible. Fortunately, and heart-warmingly, a man arrives in White Fang's life to try.

"White Fang" is often called the mirror image of Jack London's acclaimed "The Call of the Wild" in which a dog follows the reverse arc from tame to free.

    So enjoyed this story and was sad when it ended as it had become my companion in the journey to work each day. Simply excellent narrating. Far better than the movie.

    This narrative was really nice about how he says the Librivox thing. I enjoyed the book a whole lot better than the movie.

    Great read, if you are like most humans and love dogs (and wolves of course) you'll be thankful you read this classic. If you dont get whats so great about canines maybe this book will help show you the folly of your ways!

    A great story! For any who grew up with Where A Red Fern Grows, you'll most likely love this.
