I just ran across this title on Ralph Maughn's blog. Has anyone read this book? If so what did you think of it? For those of you that are interested in it, here is a link to read about a 7 page sample: http://www.bconnollybooks.com/samples/w ... sample.pdf

Here is a description of the book:
"Wolf Journal, the young adult novel adults should read, is set in the Allegheny Mountains of northern Pennsylvania. Jimmy Warren, a farm boy, finds wolf tracks in the snow. No wolves have been in these woods for a hundred years. The tracks lead him deeper into his passion for nature guided by Hawk, an old Susquehannock storyteller.

Along the way, Jimmy falls in love with the beautiful Sherry Woolman who shares his love of the wild. As a school project, Jimmy keeps a journal on wolves. In order to protect the wolf he's discovered, Jimmy writes about him as if he is fiction. The Tanner brothers, a derelict pair of would be bounty hunters, threaten to destroy the perfect balance of nature that Jimmy has found. Wolf Journal is a journey into the natural world where intricate details, like the imprint of a wing in snow, tell a larger story, one of endangered species, an endangered planet, and the human spirit that strives to understand and protect."

Let me know what you think.

It almost sounds like a children`s version of Nicholas Evan`s The Loop, in which a young man discovers a wolf pack living on his father`s ranch. Its not really about wolves as so much the relationship of a wolf biologist and the young man...but Wolf Journal sounds way more intresting.I`ll have to find it!
