Grammardog Teacher's Guide contains 16 quizzes for this novel. All sentences are from the novel. Figurative language and allusions are characteristic of Naturalism: "On the sled in a 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." "So there was no damming up the tide of life that was rising within him." "The night yawned about him." "some strange freak of Chance," "ruled over by Chance, merciless, planless, endless," "Fortune seemed to favor him."
