Review: Thirteen year old Case lives and breathes the computer game Bow Hunter and finally gets the chance to act out his hunting fantasy in the remote backcountry beyond his yard. Meanwhile, aging alpha wolf Nashoba must lead his pack to their next meal if they are to survive the Starving Time. Narration shifts between the two and builds suspense as their two worlds speed toward a collision. Fantasy jolts to a halt with the finality of a real-world kill in this thought-provoking meld of man-versus-nature.
