Not only did Buck learn by experience, but many dead instincts came alive again. Generations of his ancestors who had become domesticated as pets were forgotten.

Buck seemed to remember back to the tim when wild dogs lived in packs in primitive forests, kiling their meat as they ran it down. So was not difficult for him to lear to fight as his wolf ancestors did, by cutting, slashing, and snapping. And just as the wolf howled his sad night time song about life's sorrow, now Buck, too, pointed his nose at the moon and sounded the ancient wolf-like song, loud and clear and mournful. The wild life must go on. And the camp isn't always safe and peace. A lot of treat outside.

He was still limping slightly when buck came into this camp. near Jhon, Buck felt his first owner - Judge Miller is came again to his life. 

One night, when Buck was enjoying the campfire, he saw visions of his wild ancestors in the flames. And he heardthe call – the call of the wild. At the moment, a hunger stirred in him - a hunger for the time when all dogs were fierce and free like wolves. As Thornton nurses Buck back to health, Buck comes to love him and grows devoted to him. Thornton takes him on trips to pan for gold. During one such trip, a man makes a wager with Thornton over Buck's strength and devotion. 

Buck wins the bet by breaking a half-ton sled out of the frozen ground, then pulling it 100 yards by himself. Thornton and his friends return to their camp and continue their search for gold in the Klondike, while Buck begins exploring the wilderness around them and begins socializing with a local wolf pack. 

One morning, he returns from a three-day long hunt to find his beloved master and the others in the camp have been killed by some Native Americans or called Yeehats. Buck finds some of them in the camp and kills them to avenge Thornton, later finding other members of the tribe, then returns to the woods to become alpha wolf of the pack. Each year he revisits the site where Thornton died, never completely forgetting the master he loved. When the winter nights come on, the Ghost Dog can be seen running at the head of a wolf pack trough the pale moonlight. From time to time he raises his great head and with the pack, he sounds the call of the wild. The End.
