'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.

'The words of the deepest foretellings are riddles that want solving.'

'A riddle,' Little Fur echoed, and the word tasted tricky and complicated on her tongue and in her mind.

'Only in understanding the riddle can its solution be found.'

'All her life, Little Fur has healed others. This time, it is she who needs healing.

'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)
