warriors: Into the Wild

Erin Hunter

How did Warriors where created.

The series stated in 2003 when they requested Holmes to write a book on feral cats. After creating one storyline Holmes brought in Kate Cary to finish writing the book as Holmes went behind the scenes to edit and supervise the details. Holmes has compared to the style of the book to a different language as the books are written. She feels that Erin Hunter must have a consistent voice the entire series. The story uses a lexicon with words such as "twoleg" substituted for "human". The style has been compared to the Harry Potter series. Themes include family, loyalty, death, courage, and survival. Into the Wild was critically well received. Booklist believed the book would appeal to followers of Brian Jacques' Redwall series. Among other awards, it claimed third place in the 2006 Young Reader's Choice Award.

Main Characters

Rusty aka Firepaw
As a young kittypet named Rusty, he has been having strange dreams of himself hunting in the forest, though he would always wake up after he failed. Rusty has shown to have great interest in the forest, having inherited it from his adventurous father, he has a friend named Smudge, who is strongly against Rusty's idea of exploring the forest, claiming it is full of danger. Rusty ventures into the forest, and is attacked by a forest cat. He confronts the young warrior cat instead of running away like most kittypets would. That impresses the ThunderClan cats, then the leader of the ThunderClan and an older warrior, who watch from the bushes. The young warrior is curious at why Rusty is away from his Twoleg nest. He tells Rusty a few things about the Clan he lives in, called ThunderClan. Rusty, in turn, is asking questions about Clan life. As they question each other, The young warrior senses some cats from ThunderClan approaching and tells him to hide. Rusty wonders how the young warrior can scent them, though not saying it out loud. the leader and the older warrior appear from their hiding place, and the leader reveals that they had been watching the two young cats. She invites Rusty to join ThunderClan and the young warrior is startled, saying that kittypets couldn't become warriors, because they didn't have warrior blood. The older warrior voices the young warrior's thoughts differently, saying that kittypets were too soft for Clan life, deeply offending Rusty, because he himself knows differently. Rusty says that he will think about the leader's offer, and she gives him until sun-high the next day to decide, when the older warrior would be there. During that time he spends his last day with Smudge, and a couple of other friends. When he is seen by the older warrior and another cat, he chooses to join the Clan, and they take him to his new home.

Graypaw
On Graypaw's first night out as an apprentice, he meets a kittypet, a flame-colored kittypet. the kittypet strayed out of the Twolegsplaces, which led him into getting into a small fight with Graypaw. Then, Graypaw tells him he fought a good fight, for a kittypet, and proceeds to tell him about the Clans. He then scents cats from his Clan and tells the kittypet to go away. The kittypet didn't take to the warning in time and the leader and the older warrior find the two, making Graypaw crouch under their presences. He is then pleased with the leader's praise as she tells them that they've been watching them and is glad to see how he reacted toward an intruder. The leader asks the kittypet to join the Clan, but the kittypet says he wishes to give it some thought. The next day, when the kitty arrives at ThunderClan camp after deciding to accept the leader's offer, Graypaw watches him fight another warrior cat. He congratulates him on his victory along with some other cats of ThunderClan.
