Overview

From the Wilderness of Minnesota comes a moving story about a magnificent animal that was born as a result of a special union between a beautiful female German Shepherd named Shanna and a lone wolf. Later, the family joins up with two other wolves and a pack is established with Shanna's mate as the alpha leader. Shanna is now destined to run and hunt with the pack for the rest of her life. Unfortunately, at six months old, her son is shot by aerial hunters and left for dead. He is found the next day by a lumberjack, Mike Banning, who rushes him to a veterinarian who saves his life. The Banning's, Mike and Becky, who lived outside of Bemidji, Minnesota with their two teenagers, Julie and Jeff, decided to adopt this wild, furry animal from the wilderness and raise him domestically. They named him Buster, and in two years he went from 60 pounds to 145 pounds. He looked exactly like a timber wolf but had the fur coloring of a German Shepherd. When people first saw him they would stop and stare, open-mouthed. He was indeed magnificent; He was also friendly and playful with most folks, but strangers were greeted with indifference or a baleful stare. Then things began to change as the strong wolf genes within him rose to the surface. Every night when he was let out he would rush around the Banning property to mark his territory. Hearing wolves howling in the distance he howled back his warning,: "this is my territory, beware!" The story continues as Buster's fame spreads throughout the region. It also attracts a sinister criminal element that threatens both Buster and the Banning family. What happens next will keep you in suspense. The wonderfully intense conclusion will both thrill and touch your heart for years to come.

Meet the Author

As a youngster, growing up in Norwich, New York, I was fascinated by the land and the creatures that lived there. I would play for hours in the woods behind my home pretending I was a great hunter like Daniel Boone. I moved to Washington, D.C. when my Dad, who was an avid hunter, took a job with the National Wildlife Federation. My love of the outdoors continued to grow as I pursued a career in Sales and Marketing with several national firms which required that I travel throughout the country. This allowed me to play golf and fish at some of the most beautiful spots in our nation. I retired in San Diego in 1998 and moved to Milton, Florida, just outside Pensacola, in 2007 to be near my grandchildren.
