Buck the dog is stolen from his comfortable life on Judge Miller's estate in California and sent north on a train to Seattle. Once Buck arrives at his destination, a man in a red sweater beats him with a club to teach him submission. The man in the red sweater then sells Buck to Perrault, the driver of a sled dog team for the Canadian government. Perrault and his partner, François, take Buck north with them on a ship, where he sees his first snowfall.
