Susan Williams Beckhorn is shown with one of her own dogs.

WELLSBORO—From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday, June 10, From my Shelf Books & Gifts at 7 East Avenue in Wellsboro is hosting Susan Beckhorn Williams of Rexville, New York to celebrate her paperback release of "The Wolf's Boy." She is the award-winning author of half a dozen children's book, including the critically acclaimed novel, "Wind Rider," a "first horse" story set in prehistoric Asia.

Beckhorn grew up in a family where kids, animals and the outdoors were cherished. In "The Wolf's Boy," she delivers a powerful tale set in the Ice Age. Inspired by modern discoveries, Susan's careful research creates a vivid picture of a time when the first wolves came to live with humans and forged a bond that lives on today in the relationship between people and their dogs.

The story is about Kai, who burns to become a hunter and to earn a rightful place among his people. But that can never be. Born with a clubfoot, he is forbidden from using or even touching a hunter's sacred weapons. Shunned by the other boys, Kai turns to his true friends, the yellow wolves. When he discovers a motherless cub in the pack, he risks everything to save her and takes her to his home. When the wolf is threatened by the community’s leader, the two set out to try to survive on their own in the territory of the feared Ice Men.

In "The Wolf's Boy," Beckhorn brings Kai's prehistoric world to life with descriptions of "now-extinct animals, pristine landscape and descriptions of survival techniques that will fascinate readers," writes one reviewer. At the same time, she gives "Kai the fears and doubts of many adolescents searching for their roles in life."
