Book Description

2 Jan 2003

Michael Morpurgo has created a sweeping and dramatic story in the time of Bonnie Prince Charlie. This spellbinding tale is complemented perfectly by Michael Foreman's illustrations.

Robbie McLeod and a wolf cub, both orphaned, venture far from their birthplace, a land of rebellious fighters and vicious redcoats. There is little constancy in Robbie's adventurous life, save for the companionship of his wolf. But when at last Robbie finds a place where he can peacefully make his home, he knows in his heart that the wolf must find his own natural home too . . .

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent, moving historical adventure 29 Dec 2002
As in The Butterfly Lion, Morpurgo uses the framing device of an old person's recollections before embarking on the story. This might put off some readers, though adults will find its gentle humour concerning a grandfather's discovery of the internet amusing. Once the story of the last wolf gets going, however, it takes off and becomes a thrilling tale of adventure and loyalty. Set in the same period as Robert Luis Stevenson's Kidnapped, it's young hero Robbie is an orphan who foolishly joins Bonnie Prince Charlie's rebellion against the English. After the battlefield of Culloden, he is hunted by the Redcoats, his life is saved by a female wolf who leads them away from him. When he finds her cub, he saves and befriends him, clipping his long fur short.
Eventually they find passage to America, where nature takes its course. The simplicity and passion of this adventure-story will delight most children of 7+, particularly if they love wolves.
