“Beckie writes with a contagious passion that appeals to the young in all of us. A factual, naturalist style that only comes from having lived it…with the wolves! She is truly helping us all better understand and appreciate wildlife and the natural world and most importantly, how all the parts fit together into one complete story.”
– Joe Kreuzman, wildlife tracker and co-founder and director of Coyote Trails School of Nature.

“Journey’s story is one of redemption – for us and for wolves. Beckie Elgin has done a wonderful job telling the story and helping us better understand wolves. That’s important if we’re to avoid repeating past mistakes. No matter your age, you’ll enjoy this book immensely – and likely learn something along the way. I sure did!”
– Rob Klavins, Northeast Oregon Field Coordinator for Oregon Wild.

“Young readers will fall in love with Elgin’s animal-eye view of Journey, a wolf whose wanderlust carriers him across western landscapes and into human hearts. Journey teaches us about predators and their prey — and the curiosity streak and survival drive we all share.”
– DeLene Beeland, author of
The Secret World of Red Wolves.
