Pam Berkman and I would love to arrange a visit to your elementary school classroom for activities and a discussion about our books in the At the Heels of History series. We can visit virtually, or in person if you are in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am also available for virtual and in-person middle school and high school visits for The Wolf Chronicles to talk about writing, wolves, and our relationship to nature. A fictional and fun-filled chapter book adventure series inspired by historical events and told through the eyes, ears, and noses of dogs.
The relationships between the human characters and wolf characters are keenly felt and the conflicts sharply imagined. A remarkable look into the mind of another kind of being.

All she wants is to be accepted by Ruuquo and to join the pack. She's spirited and courageous and she sets her mind to learning a wolf pup's lessons with singleminded and slightly desperate determination. She has enemies in Ruuquo and in fellow pup Unnan but she finds allies in many other members of the pack, in her raven friend Tlitoo, and in the mysterious spirit wolf who comes to her at moments of crisis. Set 14, years ago in what is today Southern Europe, Promise of the Wolves is the first in a planned trilogy.

It's a creation myth really, telling the story of the earliest human civilisations and the evolution of wolf to dog. The press sheet likens it to both Watership Down and The Clan of the Cave Bear , but Michelle Paver's Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series is perhaps a more contemporary reference point for today's younger readers. Hearst's wolves, while their behaviour and social organisation is impeccably researched, are more anthropomorphic than Paver's Wolf - but as Kaala is the sole narrator, this is perhaps not surprising.
Wolf Chronicles Series
It's a heroic story, full of the tropes of myths and legends. There are a lot of mysteries and a lot of prophecies, but the focus is on the inescapable pull between wolves and humans. Kaala finds it overpowering and this is not surprising, for it is her destiny to solve the paradox between this pull and the violence in both wolf and human that causes conflict between them.
This contradictory attraction is beautifully described, as is pack life with its hierarchies, dangers, and exhilarating hunts. Hearst's writing is both tense and absorbing and happily the major plot lines are all resolved by the end of the book, together with hints of more to come.

Of late, I approach the end of any book in a series with trepidation and a sinking heart - dreading yet another brazenly mercenary cliffhanger. Thank heavens at least one writer hasn't stooped so low. For me, the anthropomorphism got a little too much at times but then I'm hard-hearted and teenagers - who will particularly enjoy this book - are unlikely to mind.

But that's a flaw I've scratched around to find. I think vast swathes of readers are going to love this trilogy. Those who enjoy reading books written from an animal's point of view shouldn't miss Call of the Wild by Jack London.
They can also get inside the skin of a wolf in Michelle Paver's Chronicles of Ancient Darkness series.
