In the forests of Minnesota, wolves are making a comeback. This has many people worried and some people mad. Hunters think wolves are "stealing" their deer, and every so often the wolves get through a fence and kill livestock. But wolves are a threatened species, and killing one means big fines and even jail time. When Seth Jacobson's best friend Matt seems to lose his favorite calf in an attack, Matt is furious. He takes his frustration out by shooting an innocent wolf while Seth watches helplessly. Now Seth has an important decision to make. Is friendship more important than upholding the law? Minnesota resident Mary Casanova has encountered wolves more than once in her life, and her vivid descriptions of the frozen wilderness make this story wonderfully realistic. As he did for Casanova's Moose Tracks, narrator Johnny Heller perfectly voices all the emotions of a youngster facing difficult choices.

“Who better than Johnny Heller to deliver the authentic voices of male adolescents in conflict, vying for power, searching for truth, longing for connection? Heller captures Seth’s internal musings and his battle against his own conflicting desires in his characteristic slow and easy narration. he nails both the banter and fury between Seth and Matt.” AudioFile
“This intriguing short novel lopes along as gracefully as a wolf on hard-packed snow, and should interest city and country kids equally.” Children’s Literature
