Review

Jennifer Dance's Red Wolf is a heartrending, relentlessly compelling novel about the impact of the Indian Act of 1876 and the residential schools system upon indigenous cultures.

- Canadian Materials

Dance's first novel addresses a horrific historical period and details Red Wolf's harsh awakening in painful, hard-hitting scenes . . . readers will finish with a strong sense of the abuses suffered by natives at the hands of settlers. - Publishers Weekly

Although Red Wolf is marketed as juvenile fiction, it is a book that will appeal to all ages. Poignantly written from the perspective of both boy and wolf, it brilliantly encapsulates the fear, alienation and hopelessness felt by a child who is powerless against a system which seeks to annihilate his heritage, spiritual beliefs and family ties. - Stouffville Free Press

This book should be placed in every classroom in Canada. It is informative of our cultural way of life, and respectful of all creation. There are things that non-natives do not understand about our culture. This book will help with the understanding. - Chief Arnold General, Confederacy Chief from the Onondaga tribe, Six Nations

Told with great empathy and careful research, Jennifer Dance has done a good job of making us feel alienated, lost, and in between worlds ... an important book for young readers about the sad history of Canada's residential school system. - Philippa Dowding, author of The Strange Gift of Gwendolyn Golden

Dance puts a human face to the history books by portraying the terror and confusion of a young boy ripped away from his family and forced to conform to the rules of a cruel and bigoted world he doesn't understand. What is especially impressive is how Dance manages to capture the internalized self-hatred forced upon the students of the residential schools. - Bookshelf Reviews

While the topic is a difficult one, [Red Wolf] covers the realities faced by First Nations in the late 1800's in a realistic and broad-minded manner. - Anishinabek News

Dance imbues the novel with lyrical prose and lilting rhythms, and the essence of what we've come to recognize in First Nation storytelling. - Canadian Children's Book News

Children and young adults alike will want to read Jennifer Dance's novel on the intertwined stories of a wolf and a First Nation boy. It is exactly the sort of story I loved when I was a boy. - James Bartleman, Former Lieutenant Governor of Ontario

The Dickensian world of any nineteenth-century boarding school, particularly a Canadian Indian residential school with the agonizing clash of indigenous and British cultures, is excellent fodder for Dance's powers of portrayal, and she gives a memorable picture of those who worked in these institutions. - Resource Links

Product Description

Life is changing for Canada's Anishnaabek Nation and for the wolf packs that share their territory.


In the late 1800s, both Native people and wolves are being forced from the land. Starving and lonely, an orphaned timber wolf is befriended by a boy named Red Wolf. But under the Indian Act, Red Wolf is forced to attend a residential school far from the life he knows, and the wolf is alone once more. Courage, love and fate reunite the pair, and they embark on a perilous journey home. But with winter closing in, will Red Wolf and Crooked Ear survive? And if they do, what will they find?
