point, he sees a female wolf, but she is on the far side of the black river a highway , and he chases her off so she doesn t get hit by a car Swift lives on bugs and small rodents, not the quality of food a wolf would expect, while he is healing, and hopes to be able to join a pack of bachelor wolves, but has no luck At one point, he finds Warm, only to be cruelly separated from him by Warm s death He misses the mountains, and has to learn the intricacies of his new terrain Eventually, he is able to reestablish himself, but not as the Swift he once was, but as a new incarnation of himself, Wander.Strengths Of all the animals in the world, wolves are the ones about whom my students want books Even Elizabeth s Hall s Child of the Wolves 1995 still circulated in my library until it fell apart I always enjoy Parry s writing it is crisp, descriptive, and facile Meaning that it seems effortless and is easy to read Somehow that term seems perjorative, but I don t mean it that way I m NOT a fan of books from an animal s perspective, so it speaks well to the quality of the writing that I was able to read this and enjoy it Weaknesses It is unsparing in its descriptions of what life in the wild means there is a fair amount of animal violence and gore On the upside, it did NOT start with a description of Swift being born What I really think While not something I m personally wild about, I ll definitely buy a copy because my students will be glad to have it Definitely a better choice of an animal adventure story than the sad and confusing Pax Born into the darkness of his den, the wolf pup Swift first understands the world through smell One of five cubs, he is named for his eagerness to explore, and the swiftness of his development and movement Soon initiated into the life of the pack, he comes to love everything about his home in the mountains But when his family is attacked and scattered by a rival pack of wolves intent on securing the mountain for their own, Swift

attacked and scattered by a rival pack of wolves intent on securing the mountain for their own, Swift finds himself embarking on an epic journey, and struggling to survive as he moves from place to place in search of a new home and a new family But will this wandering wolf ever find what he seeks Beautifully written, with moments of both humor and pathos, A Wolf Called Wander was inspired by the story of a real wolf OR 7 who lived in Oregon s Wallowa Mountains and was tagged by biologists In 2011 they tracked his 1000 mile journey to find a new pack This was my first book from Rosanne Parry, an author living in Oregon, and I really enjoyed her writing The exchanges between Swift and his father were quite humorous, and the relationship between Swift and Warm charming Warm s view spoiler death hide spoiler midway through the book was absolutely heartbreaking I appreciated the fact that Parry didn t sugarcoat what life in the wild is like as Swift learns, everything either eats or is eaten, at some point but that she also captured the beauty of nature and the occasional possibilities of coexistence and help, between species This latter was evident in Swift s relationship with his raven, and in the moment when he warns a horse herd of an imminent cougar attack I enjoy animal fiction that manages to convince me it is from the animal s own realistic perspective, and this definitely fit the bill It also had lovely artwork from M nica Armi o A delightful book, engaging and poignant, this is one I would recommend to young animal lovers, with the proviso that they be aware that there are some disturbing scenes This and other reviews can be found on The Psychotic Nerd Short and Simple Review I picked this book up preciously because it s exactly the kind of book I would have picked up when I was in middle school The book reminded me a bit of NOW AVAILABLE this is such a good middle grade animal book based on the real world wolf OR 7 aka journey , A Wolf Called

for resources, but it ll pan away before it rips your kids hearts out make no mistake, there are plenty of sad things that happen in this book, but it doesn t twist the knives much.the animals do talk, because, ya know, exposition, but they can only understand their own kind wander develops a working relationship with a raven, but they do not communicate through a shared language in fact, wander cannot even understand a domesticated dog when he encounters one along the way i liked that detail very much it s a very thoughtfully written adventure story, with appeal for both adults i can vouch for this , and children i am assuming the publishers can vouch for this also it has great illustrations it even has a lesson about underestimating nature at your own or your brother s peril A scuffle of noise at the edge of the waterfall catches my eye A black nose peeks out, followed by the most wild haired weasel ever Its hairs are long and stiff and wave out in all directions It is even slower than the last one I could catch that thing I look at Father He is not crouching to stalk it He is looking at me Is it delicious I nose point to the weasel Probably The thing goes to a pine tree and nibbles at the bark The stiff thick hairs are silver gray at the tips and black at the base Is it poisonous No He wags just a little.I make a little yip in case it hasn t smelled us watching so nearby It turns and doesn t back away Badgers and wolverines are not big, but Mother has warned us about them Does that thing hunt us Nothing hunts a grown wolf but men He is so small Why is he not afraid The porcupine fears no one and fights no one But I could get him in one pounce He is so slow Anyone who tangles with a porcupine bows to him forever after No way am I bowing to that thing I watch it slowly and clumsily climbing the pine tree There is nothing sleek or strong or shrewd about it I will get Sharp to tangle with it Then I will know, and Sharp will have to do the bowing.wander will learn many lessons over the course of his journey, but that one is a good solid foundation to build upon come to my blog I loved this little book based on the real wolf OR 7 Of course the author had to add in a bit about hunters which I despise I wanted to be a poacher hunter when I was little until I realized I couldn t do that Seems effed up that dicks can get away with killing our
