I'm sorry, this is a short-answer question forum. We do not write student essays. You might want to read Gradesaver's information regarding the theme "Survival of the Fittest". I have included it below.

Survival of the Fittest

Jack London write many books with Darwin's popular ideas in mind, particularly White Fang and The Call of the Wild. The process of "natural selection" means that only the strongest, brightest, and most adaptable elements of a species will survive. This idea is embodied by the character, White Fang. From the onset, he is the strongest wolf-cub, the only one of the litter to survive the famine. His strength and intelligence make him the most feared dog in the Indian camp. While defending Judge Scott, White Fang takes three bullets but is miraculously able to survive. One element of the book one might overlook is White Fang's ability to adapt to any new circumstances and somehow survive. He learns how to fight the other dogs, he learns to obey new masters, he learns to fight under the evil guidance of Beauty and, finally, he learns to love and be tamed by Weedon Scott.
