Review

When Miya teaches her grandfather how to use a computer, he decides to trace his family tree outline. He makes contact with a relative in America who emails him the extraordinary memoirs about his ancestor, Robbie Mcleod, who spent his childhood in the embattled Scotland of Bonnie Prince Charlie.

Befriending the orphaned wolf pup of 'the last wolf in Scotland,' Robbie realises that to survive they must find a more permanent home overseas. The action ranges from the Scottish Highlands to the American plains, but at its heart lies Robbie's enduring relationship with the wolf.

Powerful illustrations underline this captivating tale of loyalty and bravery.
