Bucks identity is divided between two very different parts his wild nature and his civilized nature Between these emotions Buck is torn He is restless in the civilized world of John Thornton and yet he is unwilling to leave because of his deep love for his master These two parts of Bucks character are so different they cannot exist together Eventually one will have to break free of the other But love that was feverish and burning that was adoration that was madness it had taken John Thornton to arouse Buck loved Thornton he would pull a sled of 1000 pounds for him he would throw himself into a raging icy river to save John he would tear open a mans throat for so much a laying a hand on his master and these he did do Buck felt this fervid emotion in his heart and yet he was content just to watch Thornton Bucks past owners were temporary and treated him as another part of business John cares for Buck and Buck is afraid that John will someday disappear like the rest It filled him with a great unrest and strange desires caused him to feel a vague sweet gladness he was aware of wild yearnings and stirrings for he knew not what Through his apparent return to a more civilized nature Buck in reality remains savage merciless and cunning taking joy in the killing of his food He is restless but does not know why he searches for some material object to satisfy this internal craving but no food or game he kills contents him Buck slinks through the forest a wild hunter and a fierce warrior He can bring down a moose and has a strong urge to run with his wild brother a wolf Buck is hearing the call but he does not recognize it Buck proves that all creatures are capable of love and that even the most savage
