But when at long last the storm had passed us by and the skies had cleared, the blame for the storm itself and for all that had happened fell at once upon Charlie and upon me. We were all on deck together, having just buried poor.

But when at long last the storm had passed us by and the skies had cleared, the blame for the storm itself and for all that had happened fell at once upon Charlie and upon me. We were all on deck together, having just buried poor Rory at sea, when, outraged at the suffering and tragedy they had had to endure, passengers and crew alike came to the Captain in a state of high and mutinous indignation. After that, whether storm-tossed or becalmed, I never again heard whisperings against Charlie, no, nor none against me either. With the passing of time my companions seemed to forget the matter entirely and warmed to us once more.

But when at last the echoes died away and I found myself still alive, I opened my eyes, and looked back

But when at last the echoes died away and I found myself still alive, I opened my eyes, and looked back. The troop of Redcoats was galloping along the ridge of the hill on the far side of the glen, and following them any number of villagers on horse and on foot, all whooping with the excitement of the hunt. So I set out southwards along a rough trail, having now no idea where I should go, only that I must put as much distance between myself and the troop of Redcoats as I could. I had not gone far when I came upon a great flat rock, and freshly painted in blood upon it, I found these words, which I read in the last glimmer of day: Near this rock was killed the last wolf in Scotland.

This book was not as much about the wolf as i expected. Therefore somewhat disappointing. Was not as expected in any regard Points of interest were few and rather short on any information one would wish to know. To me not worth the time to read. 2 1/2 pages of summary & information would have been time enough spent writing and reading. I would not recommend this to any reader interested in wolves and how they are being restored in the USA or Europe. Anywhere actually.

I only have glanced through the book, but it looks like a good historic children's book. Sad though. Michael Morporgo's books are always a good read for adults as well as children.

I chose this rating because I think it was one of Michael's best books.
