Transatlantic is excited to announce that Patricia Miller-Schroeder’s SISTERS OF THE WOLF has won a Saskatchewan Book Award in the Young Adult Literature Category!

This award is presented to a Saskatchewan author, or pair of authors, for the best book of young adult literature, judged on the quality of writing.

SISTERS OF THE WOLF (Dundurn Press) is a riveting, intensely human (and Neanderthal/canine!) story set in the fascinating world of the Ice Age. In lyrical prose it weaves together scenes of terrifying adventure and quiet, sensitive close-ups of its unusual characters. This is an empowering story about two girls, one an early modern human, the other a Neanderthal, who are in many ways opposites, but who learn to cooperate in order to survive. The alliance extends to a she-wolf who comes to their aid. We loved the message of understanding and courage in the face of danger, and the brilliant research that was seamlessly integrated into the story and utterly compelling.

Patricia Miller-Schroeder has a master’s degree in biological anthropology and has written seventeen children’s books on nature, the environment, and science. She lives in Regina, Saskatchewan. 

Patricia is represented by Amy Tompkins.
