Review of Gray Wolf by author Kitty Sutton
8:43 pm cst
At the November meeting of Ozarks Writers League, I met a kindred spirit. Her name is Kitty Sutton.
She reviewed the first book of the Corn Cave Series.
Gray Wolf by Zona Crabtree
Gray Wolf is the beginning of a saga. It opens with us getting to know Little Bear who is out one day in the forest
when he witnesses a group of men who have captured a young Native girl. The girl is not of his tribe, but he helps her escape
anyway. Little Bear becomes attracted to her while she lives with his family for several weeks through the hard winter. However,
she must go home because her people have given her up for dead. Little Bear's older brother, Gray Wolf, is chosen to escort
the girl back home along with another more experienced warrior and the possibility that they will not make it to her tribe
becomes very real when a deadly chase ensues after the traveling group is observed by the original three white men. Protection
comes from an unexpected source.
I liked this book very much and it will be interesting to read the other installments
in the saga. In the line-up is The Travelers, White Dove, and The Return. I hope to read and review them all. Kudos for Zona
