In the Cascade Range of northwest Washington, Tom Joseph, a young Indian who had gone south to attend college, returns for his uncle's funeral and finds himself caught up in the old man’s fight to save the wilderness from destruction. In his first novel, Louis Owens exposes the raw edge of the current American land-rights controversy and poses questions about authenticity and the common bonds that American Indians, of very different or mixed backgrounds, are in the process of discovering today.
"For many, wolf is a great teacher - the very spirit of strength and endurance. For others he inspires deep-seated anxieties, fears that have resulted in a campaign of extermination so long-lived that, until recently, the wolf has teetered on the edge of extinction. From famous "outlaw" wolves of the early twentieth centeury, such as Ghost Wolf and Snowdrift (who had bounties on their heads), to the archetypal Father Wolf of Native American religion, Wolfsong explores the complexity of our relationship to the wolf and pays tribute to this elegant and wise animal."--Jacket.
WOLF SONG is a tribute to four remarkable animals who graced my life during my 'old age'. For me it is a tale of survival and enlightenment, and for the wild creatures I chose to share my life in Taos, New Mexico, a saga of growth and adventure With Panee, my strongwilled, Gray Mexican Wolf and her high-spirited progeny, I began sixteen years of daily and nightly adventures that would challenge the most astute military minds. Now that my wolves have passed into a Great Wilderness, I treasure wonderful memories of humourous, hair-raising escapades and a sense of fulfillment and respect for four elegant, wild creatures whose manners I found to resemble humans in more ways than I could ever have dreamed possible.

A Wolf Song is a healing story about a multidimensional, dual-life journey of tragedy, gratitude and forgiveness. Its key characters--Hanna and Margaret; their "spirit" wolves, Nano and Nala; family members; and teacher Trudy Goodenough--meet every ten years under Trudy's guidance and the wolves' whims. the story begins at childbirth; the girls meet nearing their tenth birthday and discover their wolf spirits under a jump rope. Each chapter contains a verse which reveals the lessons of each chapter. Ordered to meet every ten years by the wolves, Hanna and Margaret meet at twenty in Wales and in New York City at thirty. Nano and Nala are not necessarily balanced. Their karmic rites spill over into the young women's lives. One of the wolf spirits wreaks havoc at a public event, and a battle between light and darkness ensues.

Because of my actions, I am surrounded by bars. I can hear the other prisoners talk in the distance. Honestly, I couldn't care less what they are saying. In here, I try to evade any contact with anyone. No friends. No lovers. No nothing. I just want to be left alone with my thoughts. They are depressing. Disturbing. But I manage. My stay here hasn't been too bad; except for maybe the shit they call food. Luckily I haven't been raped. And I have heard horrible stories of it. And, surprisingly, that disturbs even me. Almost every morning when I wake up I have the sun bleeding through my window brightening up my room. The birds chirp. The clouds drift by. The sky is blue. It just seems so pleasant out there. But sometimes out there isn't so pleasant. Not so happy. I'm just grateful to be in an enclosed space by myself where I can hide. Yes, hide. Because "out there" brought me pain and suffering. Physical. Emotional. More than you will ever know. Possibly, more than you can begin to comprehend. The story that I'm about to talk about deals with my pain as a child coming from inside my shell. Inside my existing human body that my skeleton occupies until I die and all of my flesh rots away. Dust to dust, ashes to ashes. And then, just maybe, I will be free of this horror. I hope. It seems to stay with me beneath my flesh, inside my skull, and down my spine like hundreds and hundreds of tiny little spiders sinking their teeth into my skin and releasing their venom to flood me full of bad memories. It never ends. Does not let up. So I wait. Wait to die from this life that is supposed to bring happiness and pleasure. I suppose that's what normal families have. I wouldn't know, because mine wasn't normal. Brutal would be a better word for it. So if you wish to come with me on my journey into the past, take hold of my hand - I'm sorry if it's cold to the touch - and step into my skull and have a seat. The bathrooms are down the hall, to the right. All are welcome to come and go as they please. And if you get scared, don't worry, it won't last long as the scenes will change from time to time. So, my friends, let us begin.
Wolf Song: Us Against The Wolves Collection Book 1. Wolf Song: Us Against the Wolves Adam Harrison was the most popular guy in school. Tall, blonde, and mysterious - all the girls wanted him and all the guys wanted to be him. Enter Noah Sinclair - the school's resident musician. With a talent for both the guitar and melodic words, he could melt any person's heart, man or woman. The two were from two different cliques. They were cordial, but they didn't mix. That was just the unspoken law of high school. Then one night, the two groups clashed in a battle of egos. Noah's band wasn't going to let Adam's teammates step all over them. The jocks needed to be taught a lesson. Noah went up against Adam. It should have been a sure win, or so Adam thought. It was then Adam and Noah found out one another's darkest secrets - they were both shifters who could turn to wolves at will. They had always felt alone with no one to talk about the special gift. Until now. Book 2. When Wolves Love: Us Against the Wolves Adam Harrison was the most popular jock in school. All the girls wanted him, and all the guys wanted to be him. But he already had his eyes set on someone else. Noah Sinclair could play the guitar like a player could any woman. He was the best musician in school, and a hot one at that. It was too bad he was already taken - by none other than Adam Harrison. Now that Adam and Noah were a couple, high school should have been their playground. They were popular and they were together. They were supposed to feel like they were on top of the world. But how come they felt anything but? Why couldn't they help but feel as if they were being judged and sneered? Just because they were two guys in a relationship? As if high school wasn't bad enough. When a stranger comes into town, holding the answers to Adam and Noah's questions of being a shifter, they find out high school is the least of their problems. The stranger - Sophie - had run away from her own pack, and her Alpha is out to get her, immediately putting Adam and Noah's lives at risk. Book 3. The Wolves' Unraveling: Us Against the Wolves It was supposed to have gotten easier for Adam and Noah - life in general, especially after everything they had gone through. They saved Sophie, the runaway shifter, from her vengeful fiance. They didn't care anymore what their peers in school thought of their relationship as long as they were happy. They were still at the top of the social totem pole, and best of all, they were in love. But it seemed like they could never catch a break. When a bonfire party turns awry, Adam and Noah find themselves in a race against time. There's a shifter on the loose with a new dead body popping up every week. To keep the secret of the existence of shifters and the police away, Adam and Noah must find the killer before it's too late. Book 4. Fight and Flight of the Wolves: Us Against the Wolves Adam and Noah were at the top of their high school's social chain. They were two of the most popular guys in school, who shared a secret that made them unstoppable. They were shifters who could take the form of wolves at will. Training against one another was one thing, but fighting against a threat they'd never encountered was a whole different story. Will Adam and Noah be able to graduate high school unscratched? Or is the threat too powerful to handle this time? Adam and Noah believe they're stronger, faster, and better together, but will that still hold true?
