Review:
Boulder, Skree and Talus are three wolf pups whose first year of life is delineated in text and pictures. Using poetic prose, the author employs images that are seasonal and tells the reader to "Look to the north." She not only charts the pups' development at that time, she creates distinct wolf pup personalities. An excellent nature book.
