I luv this book. I recomend it to any wolf lovers out there. This book is about when two wolves meet and have pups. They then have a wolf pack, that hunts together amd watches out for 1 an other. It is a very loving story.

My favorite way to learn is to weave knowledge into a good story and that’s what Dorothy Hinshaw Patent did for wolves in her book, “Return of the Wolf”, which has just been released as an ebook. “Return of the Wolf” tells the story of Sedra, a female wolf driven from her pack who finds a home and builds a family. Dorothy tells the story from the wolf’s point of view without lapsing into Disneyesque anthropomorphism. School Library Journal wrote in a review, “Readers will feel as though they are in the wild.”
