Part i chapter i—the trail of the meat, an excerpt by jack london dark spruce forest frowned on either side the frozen waterway. the trees had been stripped by a recent wind of their white covering of frost, and they seemed to lean towards each other, black and ominous, in the fading light. a vast silence reigned over the land. the land itself was a desolation, lifeless, without movement, so lone and cold that the spirit of it was not even that of sadness. there was a hint in it of laughter, but of a laughter more terrible than any sadness. but there was life, abroad in the land and defiant. down the frozen waterway toiled a string of wolfish dogs. their bristly fur was rimed with frost. their breath froze in the air as it left their mouths, spouting forth in a vapor that settled upon the hair of their bodies and formed into crystals of frost. leather harness was on the dogs, and leather traces attached them to a sled which dragged along behind. the sled was without runners. it was made of stout birch-bark, and its full surface rested on the snow. the front end of the sled was turned up, like a scroll, in order to force down and under the bore of soft snow that surged like a wave before it. on the sled, securely lashed, was a long and narrow oblong box. there were other things on the sled—blankets, an axe, and a coffee-pot and frying-pan; but prominent, occupying most of the space, was the long and narrow oblong box. in advance of the dogs, on wide snowshoes, toiled a man. at the rear of the sled toiled a second man. on the sled, in the box, lay a third man whose toil was over,—a man whom the wild had conquered and beaten down until he would never move nor struggle again. it is not the way of the wild to like movement. life is an offence to it, for life is movement; and the wild aims always to destroy movement. it freezes the water to prevent it running to the sea; it drives the sap out of the trees till they are frozen to their mighty hearts; and most ferociously and terribly of all does the wild harry and crush into submission man—man who is the most restless of life, ever in revolt against the dictum (law) that all movement must in the end come to the cessation of movement. read the sentences below from the story: the land itself was a desolation, lifeless, without movement, so lone and cold that the spirit of it was not even that of sadness. there was a hint in it of laughter, but of a laughter more terrible than any sadness. what point is the author trying to make in these sentences? had the story taken place in summer, the men would have been fine. nature does not care whether plants, animals, or humans live or die. nature is a kind force that aims to promote life and beauty. wind chill and icy roads make travel in the wild nearly impossible.
In these sentences, the point the author is trying to make is that nature does not care whether plants, animals, or humans live or die.
The overall theme of "The Trail of Meat" is nature, and while the winter itself may have made the journey nearly impossible, the author hints at nature's indiscriminatory behavior against anything with movement, "... It is not the way of the Wild to like movement. Life is an offence to it, for life is movement; and the Wild aims always to destroy movement. "

A) The author included details and descriptions of the dogs that match the historical details provided.
This is the statement that best describes how the author used historical information for the novel White Fang. In this passage, we see that the author talks about the harshness and desolation of the environment. We also see how he talks about the dogs that were used in this environment. He describes them as "wolfish." All of these details match the details that are included in the historical account.
A)The author included details and descriptions of the dogs that match the historical details provided.
There are very few details about the dogs in the narration that is included in this excerpt. It says, "Down the frozen waterway toiled a string of wolfish dogs. Their bristly fur was rimed with frost. Their breath froze in the air as it left their mouths, spouting forth in spumes of vapour that settled upon the hair of their bodies and formed into crystals of frost. Leather harness was on the dogs, and leather traces attached them to a sled which dragged along behind. " In this section the dogs are described as running down a frozen waterway", and that they are "wolfish". The historical passage states, "The majority of sled dogs were of mixed breed, and some were certainly part wolf. Not until the snow finally melted and the ice finally broke up on the rivers did the hard running sledge dogs and their drivers get long periods of rest." This part also tells us that the dogs were often part wolf and that they ran when the rivers were frozen. The details from both passages match. There is nothing to suggest that facts were altered. Also, the description and age of the dogs are not changed. The age isn't mentioned in either, and they are both described as having wolf-like qualities. We don't know if either author is describing Alaskan huskies.
Either the beauty of silence or the harshness of nature. Pretty sure it's the beauty of silence
I believe it would be A.
In the White Fang excerpt, it describes the animals pulling the sled as "wolfish dogs" with bristly fur and harnesses. The sled dog history also says they are "certainly part wolf", and also of mixed breeds.
I think it is D :)
Hope that helps!
The author included historically accurate details of the dogs' working conditions, but the dogs he describes in his story are Alaskan huskies.
