Rick Parent, Commerce author and photographer, is publishing a new series of children's books on wolves, the first of which is "Windsongs: A Child's Introduction to Wolves As Told By A Baby Wolf."

"Windsong" is Rick's young pet wolf, whom he adopted shortly before his first pet wolf, "Hunter," passed away. Hunter was the subject of Rick's successful book, "The Hunter Chronicles." In his new series, Rick intends to publish around 10 short children's stories, in the voice of Windsong. Rick says wolves are much misunderstood, very rarely attack humans, and make wonderful pets.
