One Book Northland Announces 2023 Book Choice:
The Wolf’s Trail: An Ojibwe Story, Told by Wolves
by Dr. Thomas D. Peacock
DULUTH, MN - 2023 marks the 22nd year the One Book project has brought Northland communities together to celebrate reading. The One Book Northland committee is pleased to announce that this year's selected title is The Wolf’s Trail: An Ojibwe Story, Told by Wolves by local author Dr. Thomas D. Peacock.
Dr. Thomas Peacock tells a story some of us are familiar with but in a very different way. The Wolf’s Trail tells of Zhi-shay’, an elder wolf, and a litter of young wolves living somewhere on the side of a hill overlooking the river that flows through Nagahchiwanong in northern Minnesota. Zhi-shay’, who knows the whole story of the parallel relationship between wolves and the Ojibwe going all the way back to the Beginning, sharing it with his nieces and nephews, and us. Replete with universal lessons, The Wolf’s Trail is the story of the Ojibwe, told by wolves, of what they were and have become, and the promise of their becoming.
