Plot Summary

During the 1898 Alaska gold rush, John Thornton (Charlton Heston) and his partner, Pete (Raimund Harmstorf), deliver mail and supplies to remote mining outposts using a sled-dog team led by Buck, a wily Alsatian. The most prized sled dog in the territory, Buck is targeted by a number of crooked prospectors, including the dastardly Black Burton (George Eastman). However, the former house dog is increasingly drawn to life in the wild among Alaska's timber wolves.
