The Last Wolf

In the wild Scottish Highlands, Robbie McLeod is on the run from vicious English soldiers. As he flees, he finds another fugitive: a tiny wolf cub – and a sign that proclaims the killing of the last wolf in Scotland. Robbie knows that if the orphaned cub is found, it’ll be killed – just as he will. So he adopts it, and takes it with him. But when at last Robbie finds a place where he can finally be free, he knows in his heart that the wolf must find his own natural home too…

    This book was set in a world war it was very good to read, it was a book of the last wolf. I would recommend this book to people who like adventurous books. it seems like a real story and quite sad at the end.
