Along the way they meet the wolverine, who tries to trick them into entering his den. They're saved by the Mountain Monarch, but she's unable to help stop the melting of the glaciers.
his book doesn't mention global warming, but the animals tell the Earth's story in a potent way. Many animals, such as the pika, the white tailed ptarmigan, the marmot, and the snowshoe hare, depend on the glaciers.
