Half-wolf from his father and half-dog from his mother, the life of White-Fang is finely tuned into the laws of nature from an early age. The disappearance of his father and the famine that follows, teaches him the uncertainties of existence. As a wolf-cub, he is brought face to face with the grandeur and danger of Mother Nature that he learns to master step by step.

Meeting an Indian tribe opens the door of a new world that White Fang quickly adapts to.
The world of men, nonetheless, holds for White Fang a danger more insidious than anything he has ever experienced in the Great North. His adoption launches a rampage of jealousy and vindictiveness from the other dogs of the tribe. This rejection and hatred will forever mark White Fang.

Later, civilisation and its vices take hold of White Fang when his Indian master sales him to a greedy and despicable white man. His new owner abuses White Fang to increase and fuel the dog’s rage prior to dog fights that he secretly organizes. Kill or be killed, now White Fang must unleash his anger against his victims for his own survival.
White Fang will owe his salvation to a man of integrity who will provide him the opportunity to prove his loyalty and his real nature.
