"The Girl and The Wolf is an absolute masterwork by best-selling author Katherena Vermette and master artist Julie Flett. It reminds us we are more powerful than we realize in times of panic and, at the same time, it places the responsibility of survival on ourselves. It also reminds us that there are helpers to get you home in forms you may not recognize at first: a wolf with meat on its breath or birds who remember your way home. I love this book and I think about it every day."--Richard Van Camp, award-winning author of Little You
