Born in the wilderness, the puppy had to learn the ways of survival like any other wild thing. Staghound and Husky ancestors had given him speed and stamina, but it was his own courage and intelligence that brought him through when a weaker dog would have perished. He learned to hunt, to find shelter, to protect himself from his enemies.
As he grew in strength and sagacity, he came to understand the ways of the forest creatures, from rabbits to grizzlies. And his trail began to cross and recross that of the black wolf, whom he hated, and that of the man, whom he did not understand, until the day when all three met in a breathless climax. A gripping story, so true to wild animal life that you live it yourself.
