Overview

Throughout the ages, histories and folk tales pop up to tell us about children, even infants, who grow up without the care and supervision of human adults. These lost ones, so it goes, must have been nurtured by wolves or other miraculous caregivers, and whether actual or fabricated, these stories with their possibilities of totally fantastical outcomes, intrigue us deeply. We wonder: Exactly how did such children survive? What conditions or circumstances might be required? What would they do if their humans found them? Could or would they eventually grow up to lead "normal" lives?

WILDERNESS CHILD is an imagined story inspired by a true incident from the Bubonic Plague of 1350.
