Today I am writing about White Fang, in the first part of the book you are introduced to 2 men Henry and Bill they set forth to retrieve the body of Lord Alfred to their town. During this adventure they experience a great famine of food and ammo. They become suspicious of the number of dogs in the pack and they notice a extra it was a she-wolf as they called it and the whole time it had been luring the wolves away to eat them. After 4 dogs being eaten Bill tries to kill the she wolf but is taken down by the rest of the 2 including the she wolf. Henry is now by himself with no ammo and after he wakes up one morning and saw that he had no wood he wanted to go get some but he would have gotten taken down by the wolves so he sits and waits eventually he gets rescued by Indians.
For the next part of the book it switches to the she wolf’s narrative and she is traveling with 3 other males first there is a quarrel and One eye makes it alive killing the other 2 dogs. One Eye and the She wolf travel together and after a while the she wolf has to settle down and give birth and for shelter they settle in a cave. A famine of food starts as the cubs are born and things are difficult and One Eye is forced to find food but the cubs die besides a gray wolf who is the strongest of the litter and the most curios. When he goes out to the wild he learns a very valuable lesson “Kill or be Killed”.
In Part three the cub and Mother take off and find themselves in a Indian camp and the Indian notices the mother and calls to her ‘Kiche” and this is when we meet Gray Beaver, and the grey cub is named White Fang because he was growling at the man how was calling Kiche. White Fang learns to obey “man god” he is first taken with Gray Beaver to sell some of the pelts he had and there he learned to become a fighter by fighting the other dogs there and he meets lip lip and he fight him. He is seen by A ugly old man ironically named Beauty Smith who wants to buy him by tricking him to alcohol and then make his offer later and it works after he gets so addicted the Old man offers him bottles as payment. Later he is put to fight bloody battles with other dogs eventually a man comes to his rescue and takes White Fang from Beauty Smith when he tries to get him back he is threaten to be put in jail. Then we meet Weedon Scott and he is the one who saves White Fang. Under the Care of Weedon he first feels what is was to be loved and before he only knew like. When Weedon has to go to California and he leaves White Fang behind, but little did he know White Fang Actually sneaked on board and went with him.
IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW THE END DO NOT READ ON SPOILER ALERT!
At the end of this book White Fang becomes a trained dog and saves him from a broken leg by alerting his family he also dies from attacking an escape from prison who Weedon had put in jail. I rate this book 10 out of 10 And this is one of my favorite books and is going with my top ten.

The Constructions of Cathedrals took hundreds of years and many people who worked on them did not even get to see the final complete build of something they spent all of their time building. Cathedrals were giant stone churches that required masons to build, you can assume took a lot of money they would get this money from people paying things called Indulgences and these were scams that said they would get there sin washed away if the payed them. So these people were scamming everyone even the homeless. The Cologne Cathedral took 640 years to build and this is in Germany. St. Peters Bassilica was the largest Cathedral in the world and it measured about 50 square kilometers.
This Weekend is Mothers Day so I am going Write about it. The First ever Mother’s day was 1908 which was 105 years ago when Anna Jarvis had a memorial for her mom. This ceremony was is Grafton West Virgina. Anna Jarvis made Mother’s day a recognized Holiday because In 1905 Her very deeply loved mother died Ann Reeves Jarvis. Before Ann was trying to make it a holiday and after hard work she showed honor by finishing whats she wanted. Even though they made it a holiday she started to hate and be angry at the company’s trying to get rich off of this new holiday. In the 1920’s they started to create cards for Mother’s Day and Anna got so mad she saw that people were missing the meaning of it, it was supposed to me Sentimental not a profit so she tried to Stop all Mother’s days. Eventually she got so mad in 1923 she crashed a candy makers convention in Philadelphia. Anna’s New holiday was then celebrated around the world.
This post is going to be about jokes and history about jokes and facts. One of the first jokes was “Something in which has never occurred is a young woman farting in her husbands lap”. Jokes have been around forever some people say that one of the first jokes ever was the human race. There are 3 different types of jokes. You have a Verbal joke which means something you say to mess with the other person or to make them laugh like Yo momma jokes or regular jokes. Then you have Anti joke which is something like this ” What did the Lion say to the Ant nothing because Lions cant talk”. And after that type you have the Physical Joke where you do something like putting roaches in there bed or putting red hair dye in someones shampoo bottle. My Favorite type of jokes are Physical jokes. My favorite Physical joke is where you smack someone and they chase after you and another guy hits him with a exercise ball as soon as he rounds the corner.
