The novel is written from the point of view of the titular main character, a wolf-dog named White Fang, as he transitions into domestication. The novel is set in the Yukon Territory in Canada during the Klondike Gold Rush of the 1890s. White Fang is the thematic opposite of its companion text; while The Call of the Wild concerns a dog's natural wild instincts, White Fang is about an undomesticated creature's ability to be tamed.
