Review by: Jemima Pett on June 11, 2012 :
It's a testament to good story telling that even though the whole story led up to what happened in the prologue, I still didn't see it coming! Nashoga is the leader (alpha wolf) of his pack but there is trouble on the loose and he has many trials and tribulations to overcome until he succeeds in getting rid of it. That is a trite summary, but it is a gorgeous book, with wonderful mental pictures painted of the countryside he inhabits, the creatures he interacts with, and the friendships and alliances made with the unlikeliest of 'people'. Vivid tales of fighting and hardship and living in the backwoods engage avid readers.

I saw one review which said there is nothing like it, which I think is untrue. Jack London's Call of the Wild and White Fang are classics probably still in print, but Joseph E Chipperfield's children's stories, especially Great Heart, are of this specific genre and, frankly, I love them! I still have Great Heart, and Dark Fury, and the paperbacks are probably fifty years old now. I'd also recommend Elyne Mitchell's The Silver Brumby series from the same era. We can add Nashoga to these classics.

Any young person who loves animals will love these stories of wolves in their own element. I highly recommend Nashoga: Book 1 of the Redstone Series and eagerly await book 2!

Review by: Meredith Novkovic on Aug. 17, 2011 :
The author has done something wonderful here. She has created a novel, not only for young adults, but for readers of all ages. I purchased this book a few months ago and finally had time to sit and read for more than 5 minutes. I couldn't put it down once I started! She created wonderful characters that have substance and has given credible "voices" to these animals. It takes you on a journey that many of us have already been through; the personal trials to become an adult, to find out who we really are and who we want to be. I can't wait to read her other novels and have em already waiting for me on my iPad! Now to find that free time again!!

Review by: Morgan Muir on April 03, 2011 :
This is more of a children or young adults story. It was written well and had some beautiful descriptions. I would suggest this story for educational purposes, as the story contains great moral issues.
It is written from the perspective of animals (actually there are no humans in it), it has the underlying message of how to deal with bullies,abuse and amongst other things friendship between different species. All in all I enjoyed the read and would love to see what the writer could ona more adult story level. I recommend you give this book a try.

Review by: pigpen on April 01, 2011 :
A story of wildlife love, loss, friendship and adventure, made all the better because of Nashoga telling it in his own wolf-like manner. A very enjoyable read finished easily within a day.

Review by: R. A. Danger on March 30, 2011 :
This is story of a an alpha wolf and his new friend an elk, named Buck that go on a journey and learn many things in the time they spent together. After Nashoga was chase from Tala and his pack. He later on meets an elk, an elk that he at first tries to eat but slowly warms up to the idea that they could be friends and that friend turns to a strong bond that last thought out the story.
As for Nashoga he wants to go back to defeat Farkas, but first he must get pass a grizzly, a mountain lion, and see if the next door pack will help or not. He learns the answer to his questions on the journey. He also learns the most important lesson that he is not alone.
There is also Swiftfoot an unusual rabbit with the knowledge and wisdom that Nashoga will need if he is going to get to the end with what he needs, to once again stand as alpha.

Review by: Albert Robbins on March 27, 2011 :
This book was just incredible and I invite all to read it as soon as they can click on buy now. I fell in love with the furry creatures of this book and in fact I can not wait for more. I had a coonection with the furry creatures of this book that most save for human characters. Who thought creatures could convey such human qualities, other than the author. Good work Rebecca and I can not wait for more from you.

Nashoga is a satisfying read and I highly recommend it for all ages. The writing is solid, the story moves at a comfortable pace, and the climax left me breathless.

I look forward to more adventures with the Redstone Pack.

That was a really good book! I'm so glad I read it. The imagery was amazing! And the narration, well let's just say that it was practically perfect. You captured his emotions very well, I felt the same loyalty and pain.

I don't know what else to say. I just wish that this book was in hard copy. :) Great writing, great story, I loved the relationship between Buck and Nash! Loooooved it!

Review by: Ihalani on Feb. 14, 2011 :
Like Paul said, the author managed to capture the emotions of her animal characters better than other authors do with humans! Her descriptions are wonderfully unique.

The imagery is one to die for, It made me feel I WAS in the forest Nashoga lived in. Everything was perfectly enraptured and shown to me in the book. I definitely recommend this book. It is a simple and short read, but it doesn't falls into plain and trite it stays as a work of art in all the sense of the words.

Review by: Paul Swearingen on Feb. 12, 2011 :
"Nashoga" is a fine tale by a talented writer who manages to capture emotions with her furred characters in a more believable manner than many writers do with humans. It's more than just a talking animals story - "Nashoga" is both a story of survival and love, and it answers a universal question: Can food be friends? I recommend this one especially for the middle-school-age reader.
