Description for Reader
Life is changing for Canada's Anishnaabe Nation and for the wolf packs that share their territory. In the late 1800s, both Native people and wolves are being forced from the land. Starving and lonely, an orphaned timber wolf is befriended by a boy named Red Wolf. But under the Indian Act, Red Wolf is forced to attend a residential school far from the life he knows, and the wolf is alone once more. Courage, love and fate reunite the pair, and they embark on a perilous journey home. But with winter closing in, will Red Wolf and Crooked Ear survive? And if they do, what will they find?
Main Description
At the dawn of the 20th century, both wolves and Canadas Native peoples are regarded as savage threats to be removed from the land to make way for logging and European settlement. Crooked Ear, a young timber wolf, watches as his family is slaughtered by lumberjacks. Starving and lonely, he is befriended by Red Wolf, a boy from the Anishnaabe Nation. But soon the child is forced to attend residential school, where his identity is reduced to a number and a new name: George. And Crooked Ear is alone once more. When the boy escapes from the school, Crooked Ear joins him. Pursued by the government agent and with the winter closing in, they make the perilous trip back to the reserve. Can Red Wolfs parents protect him from the Mounties who capture runaway children? And after years of indoctrination, where does he fit in? Has he become George?
