What will Ziva choose, her love for the Man or the freedom of the wild? 
 
Ziva heard the call of the wild. Most mushers believed that Ziva’s eyes of different colors made her half wild, so no one wanted her. But one man took a liking to her.

As Ziva begins to trust the Man, she learns to use her wild energy to pull his sled, but she’s torn between her love for the Man and the wolf’s call. Will she stay . . . or go?

This story has been growing in Barbara Joosse’s head since a friend told her about his dog, Ziva, who was “wild as a wolf and white as the snow.” Kate Kiesler’s striking full-color art perfectly captures Ziva’s struggle in this powerful book.
