Manuel, who is a gardener, kidnapped Buck. He took Buck to the north. Then Buck became a sledge-dog. The cold weather, the fights, his dead friend Curly and many things made Buck knew the law of club and tooth. There was no fair. Only fight and war can help him.

It was his love for Thornton that stopped him going into the forest. He was loyal to Thornton. Buck saved ThorntonЎЇs life twice.
