This is a story about a pack of timber wolves who travel 200 miles in the northern Ontario wilderness tracking down their favorite prey, the woodland caribou. A harsh winter and scarce food supply made their annual trek extremely difficult.
This story is riveting and clearly describes the impact that degradation of habitat and environment are having on the wilderness everywhere.
Paul Brown tells great stories, especially animal stories. This offering, Wolf Pack of the Winisk River, is a remarkable animal story. The book is superbly illustrated by native artist, Robert Kakegamic. I would give this a "10."
This is a novel written in poetry format and filled with factual information about wolves.
This is, first and foremost, a story about a pack of Gray Wolves who are making their annual 200 mile trek to find their favorite prey, Woodland Caribou. There is a second story, almost subliminal, that focuses on the global struggle of dealing with environment, habitat, and wild-life. The author has interwoven the two themes and helps the reader appreciate the complexity of the problem and the seriousness of the issues.

Borrow, at least. This is an exceptional story about wolves, habitat, and environment. It is well- written, informative, and worthwhile. Once the cover is opened, the pages will hold the reader’s attention to the end.
