About Book

From AudioFile
Eerie music sets the scene of the Alaskan wilderness. Hagon's rendition of London's anthropomorphic story of a wolf/dog is geared toward a younger audience. His voice contains that sense of intimacy and emphasis that characterizes the act of reading to the young. The reading is smooth and clear although there are times when regional accents (some overdone) get a little mixed up. The abridgment makes a good introduction to the author, and the well-chosen musical interludes throughout don't interfere with the story. S.B.S. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine

From Booklist
Gr. 6-8. Ed Young, whose haunting illustrations of the wolf made his Caldecott- winning Lon Po Po (1989) so memorable, was well chosen as the illustrator for the Scribner Illustrated Classics edition of White Fang. Jack London's 1906 novel. As many will remember, London tells the story of a wolf-dog who endures great cruelty before he comes to know human kindness. The 12 pastel illustrations illuminate the text with their dramatic use of light and dark, sensitively delineated forms, and soft, subtle shades of color. A handsome new edition of a longtime favorite. Carolyn Phelan

About the Author
Jack London (1876-1916) is one of the foremost authors of adventure stories for the twentieth century. A native of San Francisco, California, London spent a restless youth trying his hand as an oyster pirate, sailor, mill worker, vagabond, and student before heading to the Klondike during the gold rush of 1897. His experiences in Alaska gave him the material for his best known stories, characterized by vivid accounts of the savage brutality of man and nature. Despite his success, London led a tumultuous life, plagued by financial difficulties, and died at a young age. His rich legacy sets the standard for naturalistic adventure writing.
