Meshiska gave birth to five young cubs on the night before the full moon. Outside the den a storm was lashing the spruce trees. The sky and the land had become a part of each other: a scatterwind night swirling with fragments of black and white. Snow become darkness and darkness snow, and any creature lost between the two found a rock or a tree and lay down beside it, to wait until the world had formed again.
Into this bleak landscape Athaba is born, a young wolf destined for great adventure. Exiled from the pack for breaking its rigid codes of behaviour and showing too much imagination, Athaba becomes a raven-wolf, a lonly scavenger living off scraps and his wits.
Survival in the icy wastes is precarious without the protection of the pack. But adversity breeds an alliance with a hunter who has lost his way and teeters on the brink of starvation. If they are both to survive the man must learn the ways of the wolf.
