          An amazing story...engaging, enthralling, and nicely written, this book brings life to the animal world. Terrific! Gray Wing is faced with an impossible decision; friendship or kin? He is one cat in a group of many...but this one choice will change him, his life, and everything he’s ever known. When the leader of his group decides that they will move to a new place, Gray Wing’s mother and his sister, Fluttering Bird, decide that they want to stay behind. Stay or leave? Leave or stay? It preys on his thoughts every day. When he decides to leave, he learns that the cats may not be prepared for the dangers. Hazards lurk on every path...and as some cats are injured or killed, Gray Wing wonders if he made the right choice after all. Can he make the journey, when so many others didn’t? Read this book to find out!

              I love this series!!!! This book is about some cats that live in the wild and some of them leave their mountain home to find a place with more prey (their food, birds, squirrels, voles). They follow the sunrise to the place the Stoneteller( the cats' leader) dreamed of.
