Publisher's Summary

“A spellbinding, heart-stopping adventure.” (Booklist, starred review)

“A dreamily written, slyly educational, rousing maritime adventure.” (New York Times Book Review)

In the stand-alone companion to the New York Times-best-selling A Wolf Called Wander, a young orca whale must lead her brother on a tumultuous journey to be reunited with their pod. This animal adventure novel explores family bonds, survival, global warming, and a changing seascape. Includes information about orcas and their habitats.

For Vega and her family, salmon is life. And Vega is learning to be a salmon finder, preparing for the day when she will be her family’s matriarch. But then she and her brother Deneb are separated from their pod when a devastating earthquake and tsunami render the seascape unrecognizable. Vega must use every skill she has to lead her brother back to their family. The young orcas face a shark attack, hunger, the deep ocean, and polluted waters on their journey. Will Vega become the leader she’s destined to be?

A Whale of the Wild weaves a heart-stopping tale of survival with impeccable research on a delicate ecosystem and threats to marine life. New York Times-best-selling author Rosanne Parry’s fluid writing brings the Salish Sea and its inhabitants to vivid life. This companion to A Wolf Called Wander will captivate fans of The One and Only Ivan and Pax.

Includes extensive backmatter about orcas and their habitats.

I loved this book!

I loved how descriptive the author was! I recommend this book to anyone who loves the ocean, and orcas. I’ve read this book several times and no matter how many times I read it, it’s still amazing. This book really tells you about hunger,sacrificing anything,coming back together, and sharing. You don’t have to if you don’t want to, but please, read it.
