"I was losing it and losing it fast--seeing too much of what wasn't there, or what was better left unseen. In the trees to the southeast, the dogwolf howled. I shivered, knowing what it wanted--knowing just as surely as I'd known when it howled in the heartbeat before the wind roared out of the trees on the night I'd seen the willow glowing with flame and watched the lightning strike the ridge and rebound in a ball of fire. The dogwolf wanted me to set it loose or to put a bullet through its brain."

In this stark and stunning coming-of-age novel, set in the fire-ravaged forests of northern Wisconsin, award-winning author Alden R. Carter explores a boy's struggle with his identity and the warring forces within and outside him. Part adventure story, part psychological thriller, Dogwolf is a 
riveting young-adult novel by a gifted writer.

Point Signature paperback, $4.50.
