for Wolf Shadows by Mary Casanova
In this sequel to Mary Casanova's exciting Moose Tracks, twelve-year-old Seth is back for a new adventure. A debate is brewing in his northern Minnesota town over the growing wolf packs and the programs that are in place for their protection. Although he fears them, Seth can't help but want to see the wolves thrive.
Seth's feelings put him at odds with those who want to hunt wolves again-including his best friend Matt, whose family believes that the wolf population poses a serious threat to their livestock. Torn between his love of animals and his best friend, Seth is unsure of what to do. When Matt commits a horrible act of violence, Seth angrily abandons him in the woods, unaware that a blizzard is on the way. Now Seth must try to rescue his friend-but will he be able to save their friendship?
