      Snowflake, a beautiful young wolf, is growing up happily in the security of her family in the wild...until one day a hunter's snare abruptly changes her life. Suddenly she is alone, a captive in the world of man.

    She adjusts to each change in her situation as best she can, but always, in her heart, she longs for the wilderness and for the companionship of other wolves. When at last there is an opportunity to escape, she takes it, only to find herself in an even-more-hostile environment. As she struggles to elude pursuers, instinct draws her northward, and, facing almost impossible odds, she begins a 600-mile journey back to the land that was her home.

    How she survives--and eventually triumphs--makes a fast-paced adventure story which will leave young readers with a better understanding of animals and a deepened respect for life in the wilderness. Although the story is fiction, the animal behaviors described are well-researched and accurate. The book was written with teen readers in mind, but it has been greatly enjoyed by animal lovers of all ages.
