"Rich character development, corporate deception and plot twists are blended together to create a great book by a master storyteller. Those interested in Pennsylvania's energy resources and the current drilling activity in the Marcellus Shale will be fascinated." - Cheryl Bazzoui, WPSU Penn State Radio
In the old days wolves roamed remote, mysterious Hemlock County, Pennsylvania. Then the great hemlocks, the virgin forests, and at last the very earth itself were raped and left to die.
Now these deserted hills are being haunted by new atrocities, seemingly linked to a bonanza of natural gas. What beast or man is leaving frozen, mangled bodies in the woods? Three unlikely heroes will set out to find the answer: W.T. "Racks" Halvorsen, retired oilfield worker and ex-hunter; Becky Benning, twelve-year-old who knows only she can save her dying brother . . . with magic; and Leah Friedman, a New York physician who suspects the truth behind the killings. Their search is eerily shadowed by that of the Silver Wolf, whose reintroduced pack, deep in the Wilderness, is threatened once more by mankind's ferocity.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The forests come alive with Poyers narrative. His use of images in the shadows of the natural world gives the reader the feeling he is there in the moonlit woods along side the protagonist.
