and didn t have access to a lot of novels I had 4 my parents had given me as gifts over time and our school had a small library There wasn t a public library nearby I found this and Call of the Wild in the school library I would have been about 11 I think.I love dogs I d lost a couple of dogs by that time country living was stillof a dose of reality then White Fang is the story of a young half wolf from his birth on view spoiler In many ways Call of the Wild and White Fang are the opposite of each other one the story of a dog becoming a wolf in the wild the other a story of a half wolf coming to love a man hide spoiler I grew to love this book I read and reread it Later I bought it and kept it on my shelves I may have read the print off a few of its pages.If I liked Call of the Wild
