What with all the recent bad news for and involving wolves in the press these past few weeks, I was particularly gladdened to receive a copy of a new book that recounts the life and adventures of one of my home state’s best known members of the species, Beckie Elgin‘s Journey: The Amazing Story of OR-7, the Oregon Wolf that Made History.

Published by Inkwater Press, Journey looks to be written and formatted for a middle-school age audience; just the right age, in my opinion, to learn about the lives of these much-misunderstood and maligned creatures.

Look for more about this book here in the weeks to come.
