After John Thornton is killed and Buck gets his revenge against the Yeehats who killed him, Buck joins up with wolves. In a few years, the Yeehats notice some of the wolves have the same markings as Buck, so they must be his pups. Also, there's a story about a "ghost dog" that runs wild through the forest at the head of a pack of wolves. Buck becomes a legendary dog.
