A young gray wolf, trapped in Canada, is taken from the wolf pack that was her family and released into Yellowstone Park. Now, writes Sandra Markle, “she roams, like a castaway, in a land that is pure unknown.”
The only wolf tracks that she sees are her own; the only howl she hears is her own voice. She must learn to hunt on her own. The young wolf survives on mice, eventually learning to hunt the old and weak elk and deer in the park.
