Not YA. It is listed as "Adventure" at Wikipedia.

YA defined :Young-adult fiction or young adult literature, often abbreviated as YA,[1] is fiction written, published, or marketed to adolescents and young adults.

While it is a very accessible book, originally a serialized novel, it was intended for a general audience as literature. For one thing, there are no major characters who are young adults or teenagers. It has no, not human at least, "coming of age" angle typical of YA fiction. Until the last part (of five) it is a story of unrelenting uncompromising harshness and cruelty. The author goes to great length to not humanize the dogs, especially White Fang, to prevent any identification of his story as a disguised allegory of a human life. It is a literary work that consciously tells a story exactly the reverse of its predecessor Call of the Wild.(less)

Can an animal part wolf, part dog, be rehabilitated and become a domestic pet? The exact opposite of, another Jack London novel, The Call of the Wild. So the premise is, in White Fang. A runaway former Indian bred she- wolf, Kiche, along with forty odd others, in a wolf pack, are following three men on a dog sled, two still alive. Famine grips the territory in the Yukon, during the Klondike Gold Rush, Canada, just before the start of the Twentieth Century . The wild animals are starving, literal ...more

I was reminded of Diana, the Huntress with her lop-eared hounds driving her chariot and her nymphs as her hunting companions when I read this book. And it is as that Goddess that I accompanied the wolf White Fang (the only survivor out of a litter of five puppies), on his incredible journey through life. I was the hidden onlooker basking in all the trials and tribulations that overcame him, be it through periods of famine, extreme brutality by human beings, his necessity and desire to hunt and t ...more

White Fang, Jack London’s 1906 companion (and thematic mirror) story to his classic The Call of the Wild begins with an archetypal London setting, a scene of desperate survival in a harsh, cruel environment.

Following the growth of a hybrid wolf-dog as he grows and fights and survives in the frozen north, White Fang embodies and demonstrates many of the common themes of London’s work such as survival of the fittest, isolation from society, and a primitive naturalism.

I can still remember the day I received the hardcover edition of this novel as a christmas present by my grandmother four or five years ago. At a time when I was still recuperating from the classics thrown at us in school with the pure result of me feeling disgusted by everything which has been published more than one hundred years ago, I decided White Fang to be a piece of literature I'd better not pick up. And so it rested on my book shelf for more than three years before I brought myself to o ...more
***Wanda’s Summer Carnival of Children’s Literature***

Well, Jack London got to have his cake and eat it too, didn’t he? White Fang is like the mirror image of The Call of the Wild. While The Call of the Wild was about a domestic dog going wild, White Fang is the tale of a (predominately) wolf becoming domesticated.

It’s a very sentimental story, structured to get us to identify with the animal. The structure sets us up to view Gray Beaver as fair but unloving, to see Beauty Smith as hateful, and

One of my all time favorite books. Hard at times, bloody, but if you love the outdoors, and dogs, try it.

****The above was my original "minimalist" review of this book.****

Actually the book doesn't require much of a review beyond, "great book". However as a friend here noted she's just reading it my mind was drawn back to it.

As noted below I grew up on a small farm and didn't have access to a lot of novels. I had 4 my parents had given me as gifts over time and our school had a small library. T
Many years ago, as a young girl, during one of my gaming phases, I remember playing Age of Empires II. And I remember how the Aztecs, during their halcyon days succumbed to the power of the Spanish Conquistadors, merely because they though them Gods. Gods who carried guns and firepower. Gods who wore armour. Gods that they sacrificed people to pacify. Gods that ultimately caused their destruction. And no, I'm not giving a history lesson; I'm trying to give an analogy.

I opened my ancient copy of this book with the excitement of reading an old friend. I know I originally read it when I was about 12 or 14. I would not recommend it to anyone under 14 now, and definitely not to anyone with the slightest tendency towards cruelty or bullying. On this reading I was alternately horrified by the beatings meted out to White Fang and other animals (and their justification), and discomforted by the discourse Jack London creates about the intentions, understandings and in ...more

Leí este libro en mi niñez y hace poco tiempo volví a releerlo, con la grata satisfacción que independiente de la edad del lector, la historia provoca las mismas emociones. Es un libro muy conmovedor, en el cual nuestro canino protagonista vive en carne propia los aspectos más extremos de la naturaleza humana, a través de los diferentes amos que tiene durante su vida. Así, experimenta la degradación más extrema, hasta la redención gracias a su “maestro de amor” al cual responde con una lealtad a ...more

The first time I read this book I was ten and it took me all of summer vacation to finish the book. Now it only took two days and it was the nostalgia that helped me finish the book. Adventure books have lost some of their appeal to me as an adult, but I can still appreciate the captivating, descriptive writing. Some parts of this haven't aged well, I can't say that the inspiration that Nietzsche provided for writer is boring, but the absolute strength and quiet dignity of Whi

White Fang is half dog and half wolf. Growing up in the Yukon territory of Canada during the Klondike Gold Rush, he learned the law of the Wild at an early age: kill, or be killed, eat, or be eaten. Separated from his mother and traded from master to master, White Fang never grasped the concept of love, and violence was all that he knew. Having no teacher, he learned the rules of survival by experience. Then, a cruel man buys White Fang and turns him into a pit dog forced to fight for money. Wit ...more
Reading Jack London's White Fang was beyond any expectation. The manner by which he has so vividly written in an animal's point of view leads one to incredulous experiences and conclusions while wholly experiencing the enthralling story. I'm almost inclined to argue - with an implausible idea - that London is white fang himself experiencing firsthand all that he has written. This statement does not render absurdity but rather should be further taken as an evidence giving credence that London's W ...more

Nesta espécie de prequela a “Apelo da Floresta” o protagonista canino faz o caminho inverso do seu familiar, isto é, Presa Branca parte do meio selvagem para a civilização e companhia dos homens. Por ventura, uma das mais famosas personagens de Jack London, o lobo guerreiro de inteligência excepcional e moldado pela dureza que conheceu às mãos dos seus donos, mais até que na floresta.

Though I responded with boyish enthusiasm to 'The Call of the Wild' many years ago and it re-echoes in memory, I had not read 'White Fang' or any of London's other books until now. I don't think 'White Fang' quite compares with its companion novel stylistically - the later chapters in particular are too obviously allegorical and predictable - but it is equally rugged, energetic and thrilling. London excels at seeing the world through the dog wolf's eyes, and he also manages the difficult and nec ...more

I’d read White Fang (1906) before I started Call of the Wild (1903) - I didn’t check their chronology. Another thing I didn’t know is that Call of the Wild is considered his great masterpiece, and I can probably appreciate this; it is in some ways tighter and leaves the reader with a more haunting sense of ‘the wild’ that we have all evolved from. Both novels still make an impact on the reader even after just over a hundred years. In fact the only thing that dates either book is an occasional ar ...more

The book White Fang was about a wolf dog. It is broken into sections. It’s starts off with the unborn dog’s family and their pursuit of two men transporting a body across the Great North West. The two character where short lived and unimportant in the rest of the story. The next section was about White Fang growing up during a famine (famines occurred many time in this books). Then White Fang’s mother is reunited with her old Indian owner’s brother. White Fang is now left with his mom in a India ...more

Jack London was an American novelist, journalist, social-activist and short-story writer whose works deal romantically with elemental struggles for survival. At his peak, he was the highest paid and the most popular of all living writers. Because of early financial difficulties, he was largely self educated past grammar school.

London drew heavily on his life experiences in his writing. He spent ti
