The attacks of the huge lobo Gray Cloud have caused the remarkable price of $2,500 to be put on his head. And it falls to big Dave Reagan, considered little better than a half-wit in that part of the range, to discover the monster held fast in two of his traps.
Something in the fearless animal's eyes keeps young Dave from killing the wolf. Instead Dave releases Gray Cloud, who is unable to walk, and rescues him from a prairie fire that threatens them both. Dave brings Gray Cloud home and chains him in a shed that he uses as a blacksmith shop. Dave expects now that, as a result of this feat, his cousins will finally come to respect him. But as far as they are concerned, this is the time to put a bulletin Gray Cloud, cut off his paws and head fur, and claim the $2,500 reward.
What they didn't anticipate is that Dave would object to their plan. Dave escapes with Gray Cloud into the wilderness, and it is there that the two become indelibly attached. It was an error, however, for Dave to think that men would not intrude on them. Before long both Dave and Gray Cloud are fugitives, having to protect each other as they attempt to elude their pursuers.

Hi, I love wolves and dogs, I live with 5, I work as a 360 operator by day I do dog rescue work. I live a quite life,
Anything wolf themed I look for, I live with wolves and I'm devoted to them, so when I saw this book I was unsure about the western side of it.... omg... I'm so glad I gave it a chance, what a really REALLY good story on how a man and a wolf became best of friends and the adventures they have together....
100% recommended....... enjoy
"fun throwback western mountain man story from 1933"
Yes. Larger than life characters; good versus bad guys; man meets wolf.
His usual brilliant reading -- Mark Bramhall can do no wrong; he is clearly one of the best. I now look for books that he's reading, even if I haven't heard of the author...
