Wolf Music Cover

Wolves are regal, intelligent, intuitive, and (some think) mystical. But musical? Max, Shirley, and Rex are! Theirs is a song of wild mountain heights, of voice joining voice and echo weaving with echo telling of beauty, strength, and brotherhood in the wild mountains as surely as if it was sung with words.

When Karl played bass viol at his wilderness camp in Canada, the trio showed up one evening to sing the music. Night after night the friendship grew. So Karl brought the wolves back to the Baltimore Symphony—and stardom. The four appeared around the world in concerts, and their records hit the top of the charts. But fame had its consequences...and near tragedy.

As Max, Shirley, and Rex thrilled the world with their music, they had to adjust to the world of mankind. Their adventures range from comical to life-threatening, from masquerading as dogs and playing cupid to surviving a potentially deadly change in diet and death by a poacher’s bullet. In the end, they return to the wilds of Canada—not, however, before amassing significant wealth from royalties that they earmark for purchasing protected land where wolves may live, sing, and roam free forever.

Rex, Max, and Shirley have also been successful at matchmaking. Megan, their veterinarian, and Karl marry, build a vacation home on Karl’s Canadian plot of land, and are visited by the wolves often.

Rae Owings is as at home on a concert stage as she is before television cameras. Her artistic ability is astounding, and her work with children in school auditoriums and in concert halls is uniquely brilliant. Wolf Music started to germinate backstage at the Baltimore Symphony when Rae got a quick glance at the unusual innards of a custom-built trunk owned by double bass player Arnold Gregorian. Rae and her husband live in suburban Washington, D.C.
