The story is about a wolf named White Fang who had to find his way in the world. He was very curious of his surroundings and went exploring as a cub. He went in search of food and stumbled upon an Indian camp. The man most interested in White Fang was Grey Beaver. A man named Beauty Smith forced Grey Beaver to sell White Fang to him. Beauty Smith had evil plans. He forced White Fang to fight against a bulldog and placed bets on the fight. A man named Weedon Scott felt sorry for White Fang and threatened Beauty Smith into selling White Fang to him. Jim Hall- an enemy of Scott’s father broke into Scott’s house and was attacked by White Fang. White Fang sustained injuries during his attack. A party to honour White Fang was held after his recovery, where he was bestowed with the name “Blessed Wolf”. Characters:

Beauty Smith- He is a selfish man who wanted to make money from putting White Fang to fight other dogs. Theme:
The story centres around the triumph of good and love over a wolf once subjected to violent circumstances. It is about survival and adapting to different lifestyles with new surroundings and challenges. What did I learn from the story?
I have learnt that one should not give up without trying. If a wolf can survive in different environments and overcome difficult challenges, why can’t a human? Recommendations of the book
I recommend this book to people who enjoy adventure stories and have a liking to wolves. The book is interesting because it is about how a young cub develops its body and its skills in order to defend itself and its family against strangers. Many lessons can be learnt from the life experiences of White Fang.
