A huge thank you to Edelweiss and Andersen for a chance to review this book ahead of its release date.
In this heartfelt and stunning story, we find ourselves seeing life through the eyes of a wolf named Swift. Even as a pup, Swift was as determined as ever to find a place within his pack. Until one day, their pack is attacked by outsides and displaced. Swift finds himself alone. Without the proper tools to survive, he eats small rodents and insects to stay alive. After he’s injured, Swift is visited by a raven who helps him along his journey to find food, water, and even other wolves. Coming face to face with adversaries big and small, Swift travels through the land to find where he belongs.
This book is equal parts heartbreaking and equal parts beautiful in so many ways. Not only the wonderful illustrations, but Swift’s journey to survive in a world that seems to want to break him. The writing is easy to follow along with and definitely for school-age children. I had no idea this story was based on a real wolf, which made it all the more exciting.
