Synopsis

Jackal and Wolf by Shen Shixi

A classic wildlife story from China's 'King of Animal Novels'. Flame, a fine red jackal, lives in a cave in the mountains. One day, a wolf attacks, killing all of her newborn pups. When Flame finds the wolf dying in a human trap, she takes revenge on the wolf's own pups - all except one. Finding that she can't kill the last pup, Flame adopts the young wolf as her own, and they live as mother and daughter, hunting together, fighting enemies together, curling up together.

About the Author

Shen Shixi was born in Shanghai in 1952. In 1969, when lots of young people from Chinese cities were sent to remote rural areas, the 16-year-old Shen was asked to choose from nine different regions. He asked to go to Xishuangbanna, a tropical region in southwest China, mainly because he had heard of all the different animals there, and because he hoped he could have a hunting dog. When he arrived there, he not only got a dog, but went to live in the house of a hunter, who treated him like a son, and took him hunting all over Xishuangbanna. In this way, he learnt a great deal about animals and how they behave. He learnt how to fish, build houses, plough fields and work in the paddy fields, and worked at a hydrological power station and as a school teacher in a small village. In 1975, Shen joined the army, and moved away. Gradually he started to write stories. He has written over 20 prize-winning books for children, most of them stories about animals.
