Erin Hunter is inspired by a love of cats and a fascination with the ferocity of the natural world. In addition to having great respect for nature in all its forms, Erin enjoys creating rich mythical explanations for animal behavior. She is also the author of the Seekers, Survivors, Bravelands, and Bamboo Kingdom series.
"Well-rounded characters, deep folklore and difficult problems
without obvious answers drive the story. These dogs are not just
loyal human companions, but warriors, leaders and friends.
Perfectly crafted."--Kirkus Reviews (starred
