Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Set in the distinctive wilderness lake country of northern Minnesota,  which has one of the highest wolf populations in the world, this middle grade novel follows a 12-year-old girl and her 7-year-old brother as they leave their California foster home to spend a summer with their long-lost uncle.  Together with her uncle, a wildlife biologist who studies and monitors wolves, Nika finds an orphaned wolf pup in a cave, whose mother had been shot.  With vivid details about caring for a wolf pup and a deep sense of interconnectedness with nature, this compelling first novel explores themes of searching for family and finding a balance between caring for - and leaving alone - wild animals.

About the Author

Polly Carlson-Voiles says this novel, her first, grew out of several things: her longtime love of the wilderness country in northern Minnesota, her experiences with wolves at the International Wolf Center in Ely, Minnesota, and her career of working with lost and found children as a secondary special ed/English teacher in inner city Minneapolis. She lives with her husband and dog near Ely, Minnesota, high on a ridge across the lake from the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, where on lucky nights they listen to the music of the wolves.
