A Friend for Lakota

A Friend for Lakota

National Geographic has always been an advocate for animals. Ever since arriving onto the scene with their glossy magazine covers sporting amazing creatures caught on film, National Geographic has been passionate in their belief in the power of science exploration and storytelling. I grew up with National Geographic being the go-to for all things animals and during my school years I used the magazines frequently to aid in student articles about extinct or endangered animals. When I was given the opportunity to review one of their hit story books, A Friend for Lakota, it was an opportunity I just couldn’t pass up. I knew my little ones would love it.

A Friend for Lakota follows the incredible real life story of Lakota, a shy wolf cub. Growing up, Lakota was at the bottom of his pack and as a result was often bullied by other members of the pack. The story grows with Lakota as he progresses in pack life and focuses primarily on her strength of endurance until the fateful day when he meets the supportive and nurturing friend he’d always longed for to help him on his journey within the pack. In addition to following Lakota’s story, the book will also teach your child about the need for conservation awareness as well as coming to understand the many challenges faced by wolves in the wild today.
A Friend for Lakota is written b Jim and Jamie Dutcher. While living in a tent in Idaho’s Sawtooth mountains, the duo dedicate their time to observing and documenting rarely seen behavior within the pack of wolves they live with. The time they’ve spent living with the Sawtooth pack has resulted in 3 documentaries, 3 Emmy awards and the foundation of the ground breaking organization, Living with Wolves. The Hidden Life of Wolves was published in National Geographic is 2013.
