Publisher's Summary

“A spellbinding, heart-stopping adventure.” (Booklist, starred review)

“A dreamily written, slyly educational, rousing maritime adventure.” (New York Times Book Review)

In the stand-alone companion to the New York Times-best-selling A Wolf Called Wander, a young orca whale must lead her brother on a tumultuous journey to be reunited with their pod. This animal adventure novel explores family bonds, survival, global warming, and a changing seascape. Includes information about orcas and their habitats.

For Vega and her family, salmon is life. And Vega is learning to be a salmon finder, preparing for the day when she will be her family’s matriarch. But then she and her brother Deneb are separated from their pod when a devastating earthquake and tsunami render the seascape unrecognizable. Vega must use every skill she has to lead her brother back to their family. The young orcas face a shark attack, hunger, the deep ocean, and polluted waters on their journey. Will Vega become the leader she’s destined to be?

A Whale of the Wild weaves a heart-stopping tale of survival with impeccable research on a delicate ecosystem and threats to marine life. New York Times-best-selling author Rosanne Parry’s fluid writing brings the Salish Sea and its inhabitants to vivid life. This companion to A Wolf Called Wander will captivate fans of The One and Only Ivan and Pax.

Includes extensive backmatter about orcas and their habitats.

Educational Peak Into The Life of an Orca

I really enjoyed getting a look inside the life of the resident killer whale. They have always been on of my very favorite animals. I appreciate the insight on how critically endangered these amazing beautiful creatures are. I hope this book helps educate people who don't realize how endangered this species really is!

Review on whale of the wild

I like how this is based on a real book but isn’t based on one whale it is about all whales and how they are suffering.I would recommend this book for 9-13 years old.
