School Visits

Pam Berkman and I would love to arrange a visit to your elementary school classroom for activities and a discussion about our books in the At the Heels of History series. We can visit virtually, or in person if you are in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I am also available for virtual and in-person middle school and high school visits for The Wolf Chronicles to talk about writing, wolves, and our relationship to nature.

The Wolf Chronicles

by Dorothy Hearst

“A vivid, enchanting tale of friendship, trust and adventure.”  —Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Dorothy's Work


“With spot-on pacing and levity...this first in a new series is fun and accessible for readers who aren’t quite ready for Alison Hart’s 'Dog Chronicles.'”

School Library Journal


“Hearst excels at creating an atmospheric and richly imagined story, meticulously detailing wolf-human relations as told from the wolves’ perspective.”


“A crackling foray into a dangerous past. . . The relationships between the human characters and wolf characters are keenly felt and the conflicts sharply imagined. Hearst’s keen interpretations of wolf behavior, senses and sensibilities will enchant paranormal fans and animal lovers alike.”

Publishers Weekly

“The story of Kaala and her pack takes readers on a journey into a rich and fascinating world. A remarkable look into the mind of another kind of being.”

—Temple Grandin, Author of Animals in Translation
