A relocating ancient story and memorable literary fulfillment, urban Wolves is the tale of Canada’s first lady veterinarian, Meg Wilkinson. Born in 1870 on a farm close to Halifax, Meg’s early life event with wolves makes her made up our minds to be a veterinarian. Supported by means of the possible eccentric Randolph Oliphant and encouraged via the traditional Inuit who first grew to become wolves into sled canine, Meg surpasses the pony medical professionals at vet collage and turns into the infamous ’dog physician of Halifax’ within the Nineties. After her strange marriage ends suddenly in Boston, Meg travels to Vancouver and as much as the Yukon, looking the mythical sled canine. Arriving at the start of the Klondike gold rush, she makes her approach amidst Mounties, dance corridor ladies, Klondike Kings, mushers, clergymen and swindlers…all the mangy and sumptuous humans, canines and spirits that populated raucous Dawson City.

Observed in the course of the stressed spirit of Inuit Ike, this can be full of life, insightful, old fiction, subtly revealing the wolf-like nature of people and the human nature of wolves. either earthy and reflective, City Wolves is a vital tale advised with compassion, humour and unflinching realism. during this her 5th novel, Dorris Heffron has created quite a lot of unforgettable characters and completed a breadth of imaginative and prescient exploring the deep conflicts and interconnection of social beings in a manner that's uniquely Canadian and profoundly universal.
