Hunting—the predator, and its prey—is at the heart of this riveting and suspenseful novel from Newbery Medalist Avi with illustrations from Caldecott Medalist Brian Floca. In the computer game world of Bow Hunter—Casey’s world—there are no deaths, just kills. In the wolf world—Nashoba’s world—there have been no kills. For this is March, the Starving Time in the Iron Mountain region of Colorado, when wolves and ravens alike are desperate for food. With the help of a raven, the miraculous Merla, Nashoba must lead his pack of eight to a next meal. The wolf hates being dependent on a mere bird, but Merla is a bird wise beyond her years. And when thirteen-year-old Casey crosses their path, two very different approaches to hunting collide.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A stirring performance by Kirby Heyborne complements this thought-provoking exploration of nature’s complexity. Heyborne richly captures the various roles and voices of grey wolf pack members…The emotional highs and lows in the characters’ changing relationships are further expressed through Heyborne’s dynamic use of volume. Overall, this is a beautifully intense and haunting listening experience. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
