Wonderful staging book for dog lovers!

WHITE FANG is a novel by Jack London originally and first serialized and published in the magazine, Outing in 1906, followed by its publication by The Macmillan Company | Grosset Dunlap in book form, later that year. This copy is from the fifth printing of the book in August 1912.

The story takes place in Yukon Territory and the Northwest Territories, Canada, during the 1890s Klondike Gold Rush and details White Fang's journey to domestication. It is a companion novel (and a thematic mirror) to London's best-known work, The Call of the Wild, which is about a kidnapped, domesticated dog embracing his wild ancestry to survive and thrive in the wild.

The 327-page hard-cover book is in very good condition. Name of previous owner and the date December 25, 1912, is written inside the front cover. Minimal edge wear and the binding is good. Cover does have some fading, staining and shelf wear. The cloth-bound hard cover book features a colorful picture of Fang running with a fellow dog adhered to the front panel. Colors on the panel are bright.

About the Author: Born John Griffith Chaney in 1876, Jack London was an American novelist, journalist and activist. He was one of the first American authors to become an international celebrity and earn a large fortune from writing. He was passionate advocate for animal rights, worker's rights and socialism, although he resigned from the Socialist Party in 1916 after losing interest in the party's beliefs. London died at age 40 and at the time of his death, suffered from dysentery, uremia, and late-stage alcoholism. Older sources often describe London's death as a suicide, but that speculation has since been challenged, and most agree he died uremia, aggravated by an accidental morphine overdose.
