THE WOLVES OF CURRUMPAW WILLIAM GRILL We at Flying Eye believe that books are far more than leaves of paper. With a commitment to sustainable manufacturing and to quality above all else, we seek to bring you the most beautifully designed, entertaining, collectible, cherishable (not perishable!) and awe-inspiring books you could wish for. Maintaining the same commitment to high production values, quality design and exciting new talent as its parent company, Nobrow, Flying Eye Books will help children rediscover the joy of turning the pulpy, inky pages of a treasured book.
The second book from award-winning illustrator William Grill takes us from the freezing, blue snowscapes of Shackleton’s Journey to the red heat of the New Mexico desert, following the true story of the Currumpaw Valley wolfpack and the man hired to trap their leader. Beautifully illustrated and faithfully retold, this is a powerful and moving tale that highlights the importance of protecting wild animals, as discovered by the very man who hunted them, Ernest Thompson Seton.
