Returning to camp, Buck discovers a fresh trail which creates suspicion in him. Thus, he approaches  the camp with a great deal of caution; there, he finds Nig, one of Thornton's dogs, lying dead from an  arrow's poisoning. Farther on, Buck finds another of Thornton's dogs dead. Creeping cautiously on  his belly, Buck finds the camp in shambles, and for the last time in his life he allows passion to usurp  cunning and reason" — all because of his great love for John Thornton. Suddenly, he sees the  reason for the bloody chaos: the Yeehats, a band of ferocious Indians. Without caution, he begins to  attack one Indian after another, tearing out their throats. His newly untamed ferocity continues until  all of the Yeehats are seized with panic and flee in terror, thinking that they have seen the Great Evil  Spirit. Buck pursues the Indians briefly, then returns to the camp, where he finds Pete dead in his blankets
