Lakota the largest wolf in his group is also the "omega," bottom level in the wolf pack. This true story follows Lakota and his pack from their youngest days as pups. From the beginning Kamots is confident and fearless, while his brother Lakota remains timid and reticent. As the wolf pack grows, with three new wolves joining the pack, his gentle disposition causes the other wolves to bully him unmercifully.  Sometimes all of them except Matsi, attack him at once, causing poor Lakota to shrivel to the ground Lakota's future looks bleak, until Matsi second wolf in command challenges the aggressor wolf. Will Matsiís brave protection be enough to save Lakota? A Friend for Lakota, is an exciting, unforgettable story, that demonstrates bullying occurs in ALL groups, AND gray wolves are an endangered species that need to be protected.
