    In the desolate, frozen northwest of Canada, a lone wolf fights a heroic daily fight for life in the wild. But after he is captured and cruelly abused by men, he becomes a force of pure rage. Only one man sees inside the killer to his intelligence and nobility. But can his kindness touch White Fang?

    Story

    Book is a classic and a gripping read.

    Regarding Disney movie, White Fang. Movie is about a young man going to work his deceased fathers gold claim near Klondike Alaska.

    Book is about a wolf's life, White Fang, and his great ability to adapt to the harsh, brutal, and deadly challenges of Nature and Man.

    Although the movie performance and scenery are good, Disney sanitized the action and changed focus from a story about wolves to story about man.
    The book is a classic and is a great read with your children. Skip the movie.

    Another good Shakespeare poem is in “Two Gentlemen of Verona”, Act 2, Scene 4.

    Valentine:
    Ay, Proteus, but that life is alter'd now:
    I have done penance for contemning Love,
    Whose high imperious thoughts have punish'd me
    With bitter fasts, with penitential groans,
    With nightly tears and daily heart-sore sighs;
    For in revenge of my contempt of love,
    Love hath chased sleep from my enthralled eyes
    And made them watchers of mine own heart's sorrow.
    O gentle Proteus, Love's a mighty lord,
    And hath so humbled me, as, I confess,
    There is no woe to his correction,
    Nor to his service no such joy on earth.
    Now no discourse, except it be of love;
    Now can I break my fast, dine, sup and sleep,
    Upon the very naked name of love.
