"Lives, tragic and triumphant -- both human and lupine."
Jeffrey Reese, a writer of the outdoors, is sent by his magazine to report on the reintroduction of wolves into the Bitterroot Mountains of Montana and Idaho only to find that the wolves' greatest struggle is with man's prejudice and hatred. Through his contact with wolves, Reese is drawn physically and emotionally into the mystique of creatures with human-like emotions.
Happenstance brings Reese into the lives of Dakota, an immensely intelligent beta wolf, Jacy Cayuse, a Nez Perce youth infatuated with wolves, and Elizabeth Dalton, the alluring daughter of a wolf-hater. Reese, with a painful history of his own, helps Dakota recover from a tragic event, but it is Dakota's brother Bartok who becomes the hero with the strength and spirit that is the embodiment of his kind.
Lakota's triumph is only the beginning of a tale that belies the misconceptions of wolf behavior. The travails of wolves intertwine with the conflicts of the human characters as Reese attempts to overcome the heartbreak of his past and learns to live and love anew.
With unflagging devotion for each other, the wolves of the pack will pad into the reader's heart Anoki, the baby-sitter, will break it; then Shako, the alpha female, will mend it. The co-adventures of Nitika, a strong-willed hybrid, and Yuma, the disperser son of the powerful Bartok, will intrigue. The intelligence and friendliness of Dakota will make him your favorite - until you know the impetuous Yuma. Their stories will merge into an unforgettable tale of triumph from tragedy, told with no exaggeration of the wolf's capacity for emotional capabilities so akin to our own.
Cry Wolf, Cry is a story about people; it is a story about wolves. It is a tale about heartbreak and glory, about hate and love; it is a chronicle of the sadness and happiness of life itself.
