White Fang follows the story of a wolf in North America. Heis travels and his exploits. this adventure story revolves around a rather remarkable wolf who meets all kind of people.. people who care for him people who hate him and the odd one or two who dont care. I first read this book when i was 8 years old and ended up reading it 3 times because i loved it so much. I dont want to give any spoilers but this book is a must to read for any age, but if your a kid then you do not want to miss this book.
