For almost a decade, Rachel Caine has turned her back on home, kept distant by family disputes and her work monitoring wolves on an Idaho reservation. But now, summoned by the eccentric Earl of Annerdale and his controversial scheme to reintroduce the grey wolf to the English countryside, she is back in the peat and wet light of the Lake District. The earl's project harks back to an ancient idyll of untamed British wilderness—though Rachel must contend with modern-day concessions to health and safety, public outrage, and political gain—and the return of the grey after hundreds of years coincides with her own regeneration: impending motherhood,and reconciliation with her estranged family. The Wolf Border investigates the fundamental nature of wilderness and wildness, both animal and human. It seeks to understand the most obsessive aspects of humanity: sex, love, and conflict; the desire to find answers to the question of our existence; those complex systems that govern the most superior creature on Earth.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The plotting and characterization are crisp and effective, but perhaps the greatest pleasure is her prose.” Chicago Tribune
“Where does freedom end and wildness begin?…These are the gray borders Hall inspects…The real story is the one about one woman’s coming to terms not only with her family but with her own untameable nature.” Minneapolis Star Tribune
