Swift Lightning was a wolf with a wild and savage soul. But many wolf-generations earlier, one of his ancestors was a Great Dane. The small part of him that was a dog is undeniably present as he interacts with the animals and the humans, some of whom were out to kill the wolves, in the great Canadian Northwest.

Author Bio for Curwood, James Oliver

James Oliver Curwood (1878-1927) was an American writer of adventure novels. Born in Michigan, he worked as a reporter and editor for the News Tribune in Detroit. He worked for the Canadian government as a tourism promoter and in those endeavours travelled extensively in the northern parts of Canada, a place he referred to afterwards as "God's Country". His experience there transformed him from a big-game hunter into a conservationist. He wrote several novels many of which have Canadian themes including The Black Hunter, A Gentleman of Courage and the Plains of Abraham. (Twentieth Century Authors)
