WOLF LEGEND (Legends Trilogy #2)
by Florence Witkop
Jane, who dislikes wolves because they kill livestock, takes Buck Portman, wolf researcher and wildlife professor at the nearby college to an island for a week to seek out the huge wolves legend says have been seen in the area. She's skeptical until a huge wolf runs through their camp... and mentally connects with Jane. Both woman and wolf are startled by their mental connection. The wolf invites Jane to follow so they can sort out what's between them. Jane takes off after the wolf in the dark, followed by the confused professor. She follows the wolf through a cave and into another world, one populated by larger-than-life, dangerous animals, including the wolves of the legend. Her mental connection to the alpha she-wolf is all that saves their lives in that dangerous place. Days later, when they return to their world, at the request of the alpha wolf they take her wolf pup with a broken leg so it can be healed. Problem is that wild wolves are not allowed as pets in our world so the professor must technically care for the wolf with Jane's help. But he has reservations. The huge dire wolf pup is in the wrong world. As it grows, will it remain a pet or become a dangerous predator? As the attraction between Jane and the professor grows, so do the problems inherent in having a huge prehistoric wolf in today's world.

TOP 10 LIST FAVORITE BOOKS INCLUDING WOLVES:
1. Dakota She-Wolf by Gary Witkop. This is a shameless promotion for a novel my son Gary wrote about the good and bad of the re-introduction of wolves into
It's being shopped around to publishers now so it's not available yet but keep
watching. And, yes, it's rather good. Of course it's good, he's my son! Yellowstone Park
2. Little Red Riding Hood. As a kid I loved this story. I also love the new version on the TV series Once Upon A Time in which Red Riding Hood is the wolf… a werewolf.
3 and 4: White Fang and Call of the Wild by Jack London. I read them as a kid and loved them. Wanted to move immediately to
5 and 6 and 7: Wolves at Our Door by J. Dutcher, Never Cry Wolf by F. Mowat and Wolves of Minong by D. L. Allen. I read these books as I grew older and wanted to know more about real wolves, the kind I thought Jack London described. He did a pretty good job.
8. Wolf And Iron by G. Dickson. Loved this book and re-read it every so often. A science-fiction story of a fairly helpless city man's trek across
after the collapse of civilization. He doesn’t know how to survive until
adopted by a gray wolf. America
9. Wolf Dawn by S. Cartwright. Just read this book and liked it very much. A fun science fiction story about the mind-reading, spoiled prince of a planet who escapes genocide in a space ship that crash-lands on a planet where he's raised by wolves.
10. Shiver by M. Stiefvater. I enjoyed this book though it's not my usual thing. It's about a girl who watches wolves near her home and eventually grows up to learn that they are werewolves and one of them is someone she knows. I read it because I like fantasy stories and, as such, it's pretty good.
We´ll have to keep an eye on Gary's book!
