About this title


Adoring old Bosco, a fire watchman on Call Back Mountain, two boys are saddened when their friend dies but are comforted when they glimpse a running wolf that helps them realize that people who love the land will return to it.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3?A gifted writer creates a world and relationships that will touch her readers. Two young brothers live in an isolated wilderness area. Each June, an elderly man who works as a fire spotter high on the mountain comes to visit before climbing up to the tower for the summer. The fun and affection they share is joyous. The boys read aloud to Bosco to show their new skills; he shares his knowledge of nature and his love of opera with them. Once Bosco assumes his post, they signal him with lanterns each night, and his light always answers theirs. Linked to the story is the disappearance of wolves from the area after a fire caused by arson. One night, he does not return their signal; in the morning the boys' parents climb up the mountain and discover that he has died of a heart attack. The youngest continues to try to signal the old man in disbelief at his death. The older boy takes comfort in the return of the wolves, in the sense of hope and renewal he sees around him in the natural world, and in his memories of his friend. Bunting's words and phrases are lyrical. Moser's watercolors evocatively convey the starkness and majesty of the wilderness setting during the day and at night and the closeness the friends share.?Judith Gloyer, Milwaukee Public Library
