Editorial Reviews Review

An Amazon Best Book of July 2016: Beth Lewis’ debut novel, The Wolf Road, is a brilliant amalgam of literary thriller and gritty western. Long after a cold war mis-step has turned back the clock, gold rush fever and vigilante justice are once again a way of life. After a devastating storm, a scrappy young tomboy is taken in by a strange tattooed backwoodsman who names her Elka. Elka is raised in isolation amid the wilderness until, at age eighteen, she ventures into town for the first time. Once there Elka learns horrifying things about the man she thought of as her daddy and sets off immediately to distance herself from him and try to find her parents. On her journey, Elka’s wits are put to the test time and again, but she is a child of the wilderness and lives by its rules, “You ever see a bear jump off a cliff ‘cause life handed him a few rough draws? No, you don’t. The wild keeps going till it don’t have strength in its muscles and bones. The wild don’t give up; it’s forever and so was I.” Inner fire, honest vulnerability, and an endearing sense of humor, make Elka a remarkable character; and since I finished The Wolf Road I have missed her. And I expect that I will for a good long while…--Seira Wilson, The Amazon Book Review

From School Library Journal

In a postapocalyptic world where nature has become just as violent as humanity, and humanity even more violent after the "Fall," or as the protagonist's nana called it, the "Big Damn Stupid," dangerous storms called thunderheads are potentially deadly. Lost after barely surviving a thunderhead, Elka is sheltered by a man she eventually calls "Daddy." But he is so much more than a father, and eventually Elka realizes that she has a debt to pay—and he is the payment. This is a riveting tale of evil, horror, survival, retribution, and redemption. Teens will get caught up in the story as Elka crosses the blighted land and her equally blighted mind in search of the truth. However, thanks to Daddy's inadvertent teaching, the protagonist is nothing if not a survivor, and she and her companion wolf strike out to do what needs to be done. Elka has an original voice that reads naturally. This is destined to join favorites like Sasha Dawn's Oblivion and Lisa McMann's Dead to You. VERDICT A wild ride that will draw readers down the road and through a gamut of psychological suspense and danger to the very last word. For young adults who appreciate the distinctive and different.—Gretchen Crowley, formerly at Alexandria City Public Libraries, VA
