People can not lose sight of the relationships that bind them with the natural world, because then its only purpose becomes to serve society's every beck and call.

Buck survives to embrace life at the end of a book informed by death as the horrifying, rhythmic reflex of an entire order of things. Life in The Call of the Wild was a survival built on the death of other living creatures.

People will treat you like dirt just because you are different.
Why are the Buffalo and the Coyote important characters that act as important symbols to the Okanogan culture? In the story retold by Mourning Dove, it can be seen the symbolism that animals had on this culture and their importance. The Coyote, with his vanity, and the Buffalo, with his craving for revenge, both showed themselves as tricksters throughout the story by deceiving one another.

Something totally different has changed in buck life from being a house dog to a sled dog. From living in a big house to carrying a sled. He had it pretty rough.
