Editorial Reviews

Review

"Patent offers such close-up natural descriptions and keen observations that readers will feel as though they were in the wild....A wonderful read-aloud."-School Library Journal

"The writing is brisk and direct, finding a narrative line without imposing an unnatural plot."-Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

From the Author

Many experiences led me to write this book, which in my mind honors the natural return of wild wolves into northern Montana from Canada.  They came on their own during the 1980s, finding unoccupied territories in and around Glacier National Park.  The first wolf whose tracks were seen was a lone female with two missing toes.  My "heroine," Sedra, plays out the life of this pioneer in my own imagination.

      I live in Montana, near many wild places, and I've been fortunate to experiencd wolves "up close and personal," both while spending time observing and playing with a captive litter of wolf pups in northern Montana while writing my book, "Gray Wolf, Red Wolf," and taking long walks through meadows and forests with Koani, a wolf whose life was dedicated to teaching people the realities of being a wolf, and her "pack."  My own dear canine friends, Elsa and Ninja, who were part wolf, showedme much about the talents and desires of these amazing creatures.

     Since writing "Return of the Wolf," I have spent many happy hours behind a pair of binoculars or a telescope, watching wild wolves in Yellowstone as they played, rested, and interacted with one another.  Those experiences led to my recent traditional book, "When the Wolves Returned: Restoring Nature's Balance in Yellowstone," published by Walker Books.  As you can see, I find wolves to be amazing and fascinating creatures, and I hope "Return of the Wolf" helps my readers see them as caring, intelligent animals with an important place in the wild world.
