Night of the Howling Dogs


  • “Inspired by that earthquake and tsunami, this vivid adventure soon strips away every vestige of normality, leaving characters dependent on their wits, their skills, and the mysterious spirits of land and sea for their survival. Salisbury weaves Hawaiian legend into the modern-day narrative to create a haunting, unusual novel that will practically booktalk itself.” – Carolyn Phelan, Booklist
  • “Salisbury skillfully weaves together the elements of scouting, male bonding, outdoor adventure, and natural disaster in a spectacular setting.” – VOYA
  • “Like any good survival story, this will make readers ponder what they would do when survival is on the line. A sure-fire literary thriller.” – Kirkus Reviews
