The setting of White Fang is in the Yukon Territory of Canada. This is where White fang was born and spent most of his cub-hood.
White Fang and his mother were captured by the Indians and when White Fang grew up a little bit, he became the dog of an Indian by the name of Gray Beaver.
Gray Beaver eventually traded White Fang to a man called Beauty Smith for money to buy beer in the white man's town. Beauty Smith mistreated White Fang by forcing him to fight in vicious dog fights.
During one of the dog fights, Marshal Weedon Scott came to the rescue and saved White Fang from a fight between him and two other dogs. After White Fang was healed, Marshal Weedon Scott worked with White Fang until he trusted him.
White Fang vowed to protect his master and anything valuable to him, such as his belongings or family. At one point, White Fang killed fifty leghorn hens that belonged to the marshal's father, Judge Scott, to earn the praise and approval from him.
At the end of the book, White Fang saves the family from a brutal convict that was sent to jail by Judge Scott and escaped to kill him and his family. White Fang is a beloved book and is wonderful for those who like action, adventure, or the amazing wilderness up north.
