But Wolf, inspired by mystic visions of the 'Great Dire Wolf,' knows that singing is the pure release of the wolf soul.

When Billy finally catches the animal, he harnesses her and, instead of killing her, determines to return it to the mountains of Mexico where he believes her original home is located. He develops a deep affection for and bond with the wolf, risking his life to save her on more than one occasion.
