'Little-Fur dreamed. . . she felt a terrible pain in her hand, as if someone had thrust a thorn deep in to it. The pain shifted to her chest and became a gnawing ache. It was the link between her and Crow and the grey cat. It was pulling, hurting her. . .
'Little Fur discovers that her friend, the cat Ginger, is in terrible danger. Advised by the wise Sett Owl to seek out the Mystery of Wolves, Little Fur takes as her guide an old wolf whom she frees from the zoo. Greysong leads her high into the frozen mountains where she must face the deadly peril that lies at the heart of the Mystery of Wolves.' (Publication summary)

'Only the earth spirit that links all living things can help her, but can she find it in time? Little Fur begins a strange and dangerous journey that will take her far from her beloved wilderness and lead her deep into the secrets of her own past.' (Publisher's blurb)
