A Wolf called Ring
by A. W. Sibley
Dub, a farm boy growing up in pre-WWII Louisiana, raises a half-wolf pup and names it Ring. When Ring wins a squirrel-hunting competition, a rival kidnaps Dub’s pal. To get back home to Dub, Ring must embark on a long, arduous, cross-country journey filled with dangers and challenges that only a wolf can survive. Will he have the courage and skill to make it on his own?
