The story follows Buck, a sled dog and St. Bernard/Scottish Collie mix as his journey combines unbelievable adventures and happenings that will change his life and the lives of those around him. Buck's story begins in Santa Clara, California, where he lives as a beloved domestic dog free from worries. However, when a gold deposit is discovered in Yukon, Canada, Buck is kidnapped and sold due to the sudden demand for sled dogs.
