Buck is living the good life in the soft South when he is snatched and transported to the savagery of the Northland. There, the Klondike gold rush has brought out rough basic instincts of survival in men and dogs. He adjusts to the grueling regime of a sled dog, which almost kills him, but he survives to find a new and fulfilling way of life.
