This was a really good book, but it is from a wolf’s perspective soooo… there is violence and death. (And dead animals being eaten as well. Oh! And pictures!!! Yay… Dead deer being eaten by a wolf picture, just what I wanted…)

I actually really liked this book, but I could of done without the pictures. Don’t get me wrong, the drawings were beautiful but there was some dead animal pictures… (Yuck!) And there is violence as well, but the books about wolfs! Of course there is going to be violence! Wolfs fighting, wolfs hunting, wolfs being hurt. It’s all in there.

Over all, I loved the book. And even though there is some violence in it, I am totally suggesting it to kids and teens. -The Young Llama Reader.

  • Amazing story!


  • A whole lot of violence

This gripping novel about survival and family is based on the real story of one wolf’s incredible journey to find a safe place to call home.

Swift, a young wolf cub, lives with his pack in the mountains learning to hunt, competing with his brothers and sisters for hierarchy, and watching over a new litter of cubs. Then a rival pack attacks, and Swift and his family scatter.

Alone and scared, Swift must flee and find a new home. His journey takes him a remarkable one thousand miles across the Pacific Northwest. The trip is full of peril, and Swift encounters forest fires, hunters, highways, and hunger before he finds his new home.

Inspired by the extraordinary true story of a wolf named OR-7 (or Journey), this irresistible tale of survival invites readers to experience and imagine what it would be like to be one of the most misunderstood animals on earth.
