HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. 'Fear urged him to go back, but growth drove him on...' Set in the frozen forests of the Yukon Territory, Canada, during the Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890s, 'White Fang' tells the story of a young wolf-dog's journey from the wild into human territory. As White Fang learns that civilisation is every bit as vicious and violent as nature - and that survival is only awarded to the fittest - we too see how instinct, sensation and emotion drive every one of us. Published in 1906 to wide and instant acclaim, this is a remarkable and moving look at the timeless relationship between man and dog.
Jack London was born in San Francisco in 1876, and was a prolific and successful writer until his death in 1916. During his lifetime he wrote novels, short stories and essays, and is best known for 'The Call of the Wild' and 'White Fang'.
