White Fang Imagery
By: Nicholas Valenta

"One Ear was uttering quick, eager whines, lunging at the length of his stick toward the darkness, and desisting now and again in order to make frantic attacks on the stick with his teeth."  (Page 115, Chapter 2)

"He slowed down to an alert and mincing walk and then stopped. He regarded her carefully and dubiously, yet desirefully. She seemed to smile at him, showing her teeth in an ingratiating rather than a menacing way. She moved forward to him a few steps, playfully, and then halted. (Page 122, Chapter 3)

"But he was not destined to enjoy that bed. Before his eyes closed the wolves that had drawn too near for safety. It no longer required the effort of vision to see them. They were all about him and the fire, in a narrow circle,, and he could  see them plainly in the firelight, lying down, sitting up, crawling forward on their bellies, or slinking back and forth." (Page 124, Chapter 3)

The wolves were now more open in their pursuit, trotting sedately behind and ranging along on either side, their red tongues lolling out, their lean sides showing the undulating ribs with every movement. They were very lean, mere skin-bags stretched over bony frames, with strings for muscles- so lean that Henry found it in his mind to marvel that they still kept their feet and did not collapse forthright in the snow. (Page 125, Chapter 3)

"He watched his moving muscles and was interested in the cunning mechanism of his fingers. By the light of the fire he crooked his fingers slowly and repeatedly, now one at a time, now all together, spreading them wide or making quick gripping movements." (Page 126, Chapter 3)
