White Wolf

By Henrietta Branford
Illustrated by Sarah Fox-Davies, Tim Jonke

"An engaging survival story told from a white wolf’s point of view. . . . Rich, realistic, and highly readable." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS

A young white wolf is trapped in the world of humans, where a young boy considers him a pet, a father sees him as a safeguard against attack by native tribes, and an entire tribe believes he is a powerful figure who has come to protect them from the encroaching white men. But the wolf knows he needs to be free -- that he must journey away from humans into the wild and become part of a pack, where he can sing under the stars, hunt for his dinner, and discover what it truly means to be a wolf. With startling vividness and splendid writing, Henrietta Branford takes readers into the mind of a most magnificent creature.

  • "An engaging survival story from a white wolf's point of view . . . Rich, realistic, and highly readable," Kirkus Reviews.
  • A stunning rendering of the mind of a wild animal trapped in the human world.
