White Fang (Edited Classic)
From the day of his birth, the wolf pup White Fang has had to fight for his life. His enemies were hunger, cold, and the teeth and claws of predators. Now, snatched from his forest home, he encounters a powerful new challenge to his survival. Will he be able to adapt, or will Man be the enemy that finally destroys White Fang?
Townsend Library classics have been edited to make them more accessible to today’s readers. But the books have not been “abridged” in the sense of shortening them by sacrificing story development, character richness, and the author’s voice. In our experience, abridged books result from a simplistic removal of large chunks of material or a formulaic “translation” that robs a book of its distinctive flavor. By contrast, as we produce a Townsend Library title, we seek to edit the material carefully and respectfully in order to preserve the qualities that have made the book a classic.
TL editors approach every book entirely on its own merits, guided constantly by these questions:
• “What will get in the way of a reader’s enjoyment of this wonderful story?”
• “How can the story be made more readable while preserving the integrity of the original book?”
