KIRKUS REVIEW

An excellent dog story of a wolfhound puppy mothered by an old she-wolf on the western plains, and finally caught and tamed by some cowboys. It is told from two angles, -- human and animal, so that one feels that one can follow the reasoning of the old she-wolf and understand her bewilderment at the antics of her puppy. The author knows his animals and speaks authoritatively, but is distinctly less good when he deals with his cowboys. The story moves swiftly, in spite of mental soliloquies and involved dialogue now and again, and it should appeal to dog lovers of all ages.
