Product Description

Life for an African Painted Wolf is a bitter struggle on the indifferent savanna of southern Africa. Aalwyn is the leader and matriarch of her pack. With a new litter of pups, she must fight for survival against threats from predators, starvation, and the ever present danger of human poachers. Every day is a desperate hunt, a defense against claw and fang, and an opportunity to teach her young how to endure in a world with no room for the wild.
Pups are in danger from the time of their birth, and they earn no name until they pass the many tests that nature has in store. These trials are arbitrary and cruel, and none are ready for the menace of scavengers, venomous snakes, and the terrors of night. The fickle bushveld demands blood, and is not particular about the source. The rest of the pack must provide for these vulnerable lives, battle cunning hyenas, evade a malevolent lion that stalks their den, and discover the intentions of a mysterious dark wolf from the north that shadows their pack.
From the great rivers of Botswana to the thirstlands of Zimbabwe and the paradise of Mozambique's Gorongosa National Park, the painted wolf pack embarks on a trek to find a home. Their harrowing journey is set against the vast panorama of the vanishing African wild. Wait a Season For Their Names is an exploration of the dramas of the natural world, inspired by the adventure novels of Richard Adams and Jack London.

All proceeds of the sale of this book will go to wildlife conservation organizations that protect the African Wild Dog.
