    Abi Elphinstone

    Sarah Lean
  • "Like the classics written by Jack London and Michelle Paver, this is both a detailed evocation of an animal’s life and a notable exploration of courage, loneliness and family"

    Amanda Craig, New Statesman
  • "Will delight and intrigue readers ... page-turning. Deserving of a place alongside Sheila Burnford’s The Incredible Journey, Jack London’s White Fang, and other classic animal adventure novels"

    starred review, School Library Journal
  • "Rosanne Parry evokes the Pacific Northwest with lilting, sensory-driven ambient details. Parry’s choice to have Swift narrate his own perilous journey brings an on-the-ground intimacy to the story . . . it’s a terrain she captures expertly"

    New York Times
  • "Rife with details of the myriad scents, sounds, tastes, touches, and sights in Swift's primal existence, the immediacy of his intimate, first-person, present-tense narration proves deeply moving. A sympathetic, compelling introduction to wolves from the perspective of one wolf and his memorable journey"

    Kirkus

    Katherine Applegate
  • "A lyrical, compelling adventure celebrating the raw beauty of nature."
