Description

In the time before animals were as they are today, Wolf spends his days admiring all the other animals. Not content to simply be a wolf, happy and hunting with his pack, he watches the owls, wolverines, and caribou with envy, wishing that he could be like them.
Wishing he could be anything other than a wolf.
When the magic of the land finally grants his wish, Wolf finds out that what he admires may not be what he really wants in the end.
