"You have never been wrong before Spottedleaf"."If Starclan has spoken' then it must be so"."Fire will save the clan". Bluestar-
"You'll need the whole of StarClan on your side for this one. Call out if you need a hand. If she looks like she's going to get you, I'll sneak up behind her and whack her on the head with a stiff rabbit." - Graypaw
“Surprise is the warrior's greatest weapon”.-Firepaw quoting Lionharts words
"The Clan may not be able to offer you such easy food or warmth. In the season of leaf-bare, nights in the forest can be cruel. The Clan will demand great loyalty and hard work. You will be expected to protect your Clan with your life if necessary. And there are many mouths to feed. But the rewards are great. You will remain a tom. You will be trained in the ways of the wild. You will learn what it is like to be a real cat. The strength and the fellowship of the Clan will always be with you, even when you hunt alone."
~Bluestar to Rusty about ThunderClan

SummaryAdd a Summary
If you are a lover for cats and a thickening plot of adventure/action, this book is for you —— in fact, consider reading the entire series (which is still continuing to this day)! The story begins with our fellow house cat friend, named Rusty. Out of mere curiosity & determination, he wanders into the forest —— hence the title —— , abandoning his house-pet life.
Throughout this journey, he will acquire new friends & enemies among the four groups of cats, otherwise known as 'clans'. Rusty must live up to his clan's name in order to uphold their reputation & honor. Overall, this book maintains a consistent pace and provides uplifting character development. This book offers incredible plot along with enjoyable characters, one of my favorites if I do say so myself!
Into the Wild is the first book is the series The Prophechies Begin in the Warriors saga, and the cat that first goes by Rusty is featured on both the original and reprinted cover. "Fire Alone Can Save Our Clan...

INTO THE WILD is the story of a domestic cat, a kittypet named Rusty, who joins a community of feral cats known as ThunderClan. ThunderClan is one of several feral communities occupying adjoining territories; Rusty is drafted to train as a warrior to help protect the traditional borders of ThunderClan territory as other clans threaten to overrun them. This was an engrossing read, with believable characters and situations. My original fears that it would fall into cutesy-poo language -- talking cats, after all! -- and situations were unfounded. In fact I admire the author''s ability to create immediately understandable terms used by the cats -- sunhigh for noon, for example. INTO THE WILD is the first in the author''s Warriors series, and is followed by FIRE AND ICE, FOREST OF SECRETS, RISING STORM, A DANGEROUS PATH, and THE DARKEST HOUR. The series has also led to a sister series, Warriors: The New Prophecy, with three books to date: MIDNIGHT, MOONRISE, and DAWN.
