Nashoba is the leader of his pack. It is the season where wolves usually go hungry, and Nashoba knows he must either find food for the pack or resign his place. One day Nashoba hears the call of the raven. Since Nashoba and his pack are near starving, he decides to follow the raven’s call into the valley where humans live, where he finds a herd of wild moose. During the hunt he is severely injured and is abandoned by his pack. That day, a boy goes hunting while his parents are gone, and he shoots an arrow into the woods, accidentally killing the raven. When the boy finds Nashoba, Nashoba bites him, but the boy brings him food. By the time the boy’s father gets home, Nashoba has left to rejoin the pack.
It is fun to read about part of Nashoba’s life and how he tries to take care of his pack. This book is short – too short. If you want to read a quick adventure with an ending that leaves you wondering what will happen next, this is it. I came away from this book feeling confused, because wanted to know what would happen to Nashoba.
