Lost Shadow


In the sequel to Street Shadows, city coyote Pica is carried far away, into the land of wolves. Will she survive and make it back to Scruff?

Winter is here, and coyotes Pica and Scruff are having trouble finding enough food to survive. Their only option may be to steal food from humans: Scruff thinks it’s a necessary risk, but Pica thinks it’s too dangerous. After a bitter fight, the unthinkable happens: Pica gets locked into a delivery truck and driven far away from the city, into the land of the wolves.

Pica knows that she must call on all of her strength and courage to survive in this new landscape. She has to get back to Scruff, who has no idea what happened to her. The clock is ticking, and leg traps, wolves, and a giant, icy mountain range stand between Pica and her home.
