Overview

Dub Sibley, a farm boy growing up in pre-WWII Louisiana, raises a half-wolf pup and names it Ring. The black wolf dog with the white ring around its neck becomes Dub�s best friend, and together they work on the farm, explore the woods nearby, and hunt for squirrels and other animals that are vital to the Sibley family�s survival. No one understands the bond between the boy and his dog, not even Dub�s parents or his sisters and brother.

When Ring�s talent for hunting and treeing squirrels shows up a wealthy rival in a well-publicized contest, the rival wants more than revenge: he wants to own Ring. But Dub isn�t selling his prized dog, no matter what the man offers, because Ring isn�t his possession�he�s Dub�s best friend. The wealthy man finds he must use other, illegal means to ensure the wolf dog never again hunts for anyone but him.

Finding himself a prisoner, alone, confused, and far from home, Ring the wolf dog must seek a means of escape so he can head back home to his friend Dub. His cross-country journey from his kidnapper�s home in Massachusetts to Dub�s farm in Louisiana will be long, arduous, and filled with challenges that only a wolf can survive. Does he have the strength and courage it will take to find his way back to Dub? Along the difficult trek, Ring must decide whether to be a dog or a wolf�and his decision will affect not only his own survival, but the also the life or death of the she-wolf he meets along the way.
