In the 19th century Pacific Northwest, an abandoned Native American baby is discovered by Nitka, the she-wolf. Nitka, inspired by the "Spirit of the Wild," chooses to raise him alongside her own cubs rather than kill him.
The baby grows up among the wolves and becomes a creature of the forest. Now known as Shasta, he learns to communicate with the animals, including the wise old brown bear, Gomposh. Shasta's adventures include fighting off attacks by vicious grizzly bears, hunters and even a wild moose.
Shasta eventually reunites with his human tribe and must find a way to lead them to victory as a tribal war breaks out. A great, well-written tale of adventure and suspense!
It is written first hand which puts you right in the story. Love how the wilderness animals take him as one of their own event though they do know he is different. A great ending to this story.
