Beautifully illustrated story about repopulating Yellowstone Park with wolves. A wolf cub is captured with her mother in Canada to be released in Yellowstone. When the pen is opened, the mother accepts a male wolf, but the cub does not. The cub wanders around Yellowstone, surviving, until she meets a wolf. They have cubs, and she is part of a wolf family again- her own.

Follows the reestablishment of wolves in Yellowstone - personalizing it by zooming in on one important female making her way. Pictures give a feel for the movement, feel, and soul of the animal. Nice book for a child going to the national park.
