Om boka

The dominant primordial beast was strong in Buck, and under the fierce
conditions of trail life it grew and grew. Yet it was a secret growth. His
newborn cunning gave him poise and control. He was too busy adjusting himself
to the new life to feel at ease, and not only did he not pick fights, but he
avoided them whenever possible. A certain deliberateness characterized his
attitude. He was not prone to rashness and precipitate action; and in the
bitter hatred between him and Spitz he betrayed no impatience, shunned all
offensive acts. On the other hand, possibly because he divined in Buck a
dangerous rival, Spitz never lost an opportunity of showing his teeth. He even
went out of his way to bully Buck, striving constantly to start the fight which
could end only in the death of one or the other. Early in the trip this might
have taken place had it not been for an unwonted accident. At the end of this
day they made a bleak and miserable camp on the shore of Lake Le Barge. Driving
snow, a wind that cut like a white-hot knife, and darkness had forced them to
grope for a camping place. They could hardly have fared worse.

At
their backs rose a perpendicular wall of rock, and Perrault and Francois were
compelled to make their fire and spread their sleeping robes on the ice of the
lake itself. The tent they had discarded at Dyea in order to travel light. A
few sticks of driftwood furnished them with a fire that thawed down through the
ice and left them to eat supper in the dark.
