“White Fang” is a 1906 novel by American writer Jack London that tells the tale of a wild wolfdog who resides in the Yukon Territory and the Northwest Territories of Canada during the Klondike Gold Rush in the 1890s. Presented from the four-legged protagonist's point of view, it is the charming story of White Fang's journey from the wilderness to domestication. John Griffith London (1876 – 1916), commonly known as Jack London, was an American journalist, social activist, and novelist. He was an early pioneer of commercial magazine fiction, becoming one of the first globally-famous celebrity writers who were able to earn a large amount of money from their writing. London is famous for his contributions to early science fiction and also notably belonged to "The Crowd", a literary group an Francisco known for its radical members and ideas. Other notable works by this author include: “Martin Eden” (1909), “The Kempton-Wace Letters” (1903), and “The Call of the Wild” (1903). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive.
