Buck a huge four-year-old Scottish Shepherd-Saint Bernard cross-breed lived a life of ease at Judge Millers Santa Clara Valley estate As the judges loyal companion working with his sons and guarding his grandchildren Buck ruled over all things - humans included Combining his mothers intelligence with the size and strength of his father Buck became the undisputed leader of all the dogs on the estate At this time gold had been found in Alaska and thousands of men were rushing to the Northland They wanted dogs dogs like Buck One night Manuel the estates gardener who felt he was not earning enough to support both his family and his gambling habits took Buck for a walk to the railroad station There money was exchanged a rope was placed around Bucks neck and his life in the civilized world had come to an end For two days and two nights Buck traveled northward in a baggage carrier Caged with no food or water his placid disposition changed to that of a raging fiend In Seattle Buck was met by a man in a red sweater holding a club As Buck came charging out of the opened crate the man cruelly beat him into submission Buck had learned his first lesson he stood no chance against a man with a club Buck along with other dogs was purchased by Francois and Perrault dispatchers for the Canadian government and transported by ship to Alaska Buck soon came to respect his French Canadian masters But life among the dogs was savage no law existed but that of fang and force The first day Buck looked on as one of his shipmates downed in a fight was savagely killed by the anxious pack of dogs Thus he learned that in the event of a fight he must always stay on his feet Spitz the sly-eyed and powerful lead dog of the sled
