White Fang

Broadcast Run: 
1993 to 1995
Broadcast Medium: 
Television

The wild Canadian north during the Klondike Gold Rush days of the late 1890’s was the setting for this recounting of one of the greatest action-adventure tales of all time.  Based on the novel by Jack London, White Fang was the story of an animal, part-wolf and part husky, who struggled to prevail over both the man-made and natural conflicts that arose in his natural habitat.  Joining White Fang in his quest to combat the waste and destruction caused by the more than 50,000 people who flooded his natural world were Wendy and Weedon Scott, and his native friend, Raven Wood.  Award-winning Canadian author, Pierre Berton, who grew up in the Klondike, was the historical consultant to the series, which added a realistic dimension and captured the mood of the era.
