Introduction The Hakkas are Han Chinese people with origins related to Hakka-speaking provincial areas of Guangdong, Fujian, Jiangxi, Guangxi, Sichuan, Hunan, Zhejiang, Hainan and Guizhou. The Hakkas originated from the lands bordering the Yellow River (today, the Chinese provinces of Shanxi, Henan, and Hubei).

The wilderness appeals to Buck's new wild side and he goes out there to live with the other wild animals when his owner dies.
