He was raised feral, with a pack of dingoes on Australias Fraser Island. Captured, domesticated and put on trial, what will prevail: the nurture of his carers at the Rehabilitation center or will primordial nature win this battle over Elis mind?Mysteriously abandoned on an island off Queensland, Eli is adopted by a small pack of dingoes. He is raised with his caring Mother, the intimidating Alpha and his flirtatious half-sister the Surrogate. Eli spends almost ten years in the wild: learning to hunt, kill and protect his pack. But his encounter with man soon ends Elis idyll, violently: Eli kills four people including a young boy. Why? He was protecting his territory. Finally captured Eli spends ten years in the Park Centre Rehabilitation home being civilized, nurtured and educated. But can the effects of ten years in the wild ever be reversed? And is Eli really as heartless as the media is making him out to be? Susan Patterson, his confidante, teacher and eventual (misguided) love interest, certainly doesnt think so.
