“Buck lived at a big house in the sun-kissed Santa Clara Valley“. He trusted everyone, even one night he went to walk with Manuel (one of the gardeners helper) Manuel dog napped him, and sold him, then they sent him to go work in the Klondike.
Buck goes through many owners, some bad some ok, but they all used him the same. Buck was a sled dog. He went though challenges and rough times. (Owners-Perrault, Francois,Hal Mercedes and Charles).
Hal, Mercedes, and Charles were especially bad owners but John Thortan save Buck from them.
Buck loves John Thortan and will always protect him, but Buck also loves to be free and roam around, and he´s caught in the middle and can´t decide between which one
John Thortan is killed by the Yeehats, and Buck kills them, then stays in the wild, with the wolves.
