This is a hopeful conservation story about an endangered family of Mexican gray wolves who live in a sanctuary in the Pacific Northwest and their journey that leads to their successful release to the wild in Mexico.

This nonfiction story, illustrated with color photography, follows the lives of a Mexican gray wolf family, known as lobos, with pups born at a sanctuary in Washington State near Mount Rainier, to their release into the wild in Mexico. Through this hopeful and engaging story of conservation, kids learn about wolves--their characteristics and behavior--and the challenge of reintroducing an endangered species to the wild.
