Über diesen Titel
Transforming the territorial conflict between humanity and animals into a remarkable work of fiction, Hungry for Home is the story of Marta, a cunning wolf mother of the Western United States, and her struggle to protect her family. "Rescued" and relocated by a group of well-meaning naturalists, Marta is determined to return home with her pups.
Their journey, brimming with exciting adventures, heart-stopping hardships, and glorious moments of triumph, takes readers into a world very different from our own. Bowen depicts the wolves without false sentimentality in portraits true to the real nature of wolves in the wild.From Publishers Weekly:
Based on a true story, this powerful first novel dramatizes the tragedies and triumphs of a female wolf battling to find her way home after she and her pups have been relocated by well-meaning humans. Marta is trying to raise a trio of cubs in Pleasant Valley, nestled in Montana's Rocky Mountains. After the death of her mate, she has only an older lone wolf, Oldtooth, as her companion. Plucky Marta succeeds in her cub-rearing despite almost overwhelming obstacles, only to see her small pack captured, tagged and moved to Nine Mile Valley as part of an experiment to relocate the wolves into more hospitable terrain. Driven by her homing instinct, she inadvertently ensures the death of her offspring and her companion by trying to make her way back to Pleasant Valley. She stakes out new territory and finds a new mate who, with some unexpected human assistance, helps her raise another pack. Striving to inhabit the wild psyche of Marta with a minimum of anthropomorphic sentimentality, Bowen produces a genuinely eye-opening tale. She conveys both a reverence for the ways of the wild and a realistic grasp of wolves' fear of humans. And, despite a grim ending, she holds out cautious hope for experiments to find new homes in the Western woods for the wolf. Line drawings by Jane Hart Meyer, not seen by PW.
