Smitty visits Rose and Logan on a regular basis and brings them books to read. He offers Logan a new job and trains him the art of setting explosives to open up new seems. Soon Logan becomes a respected man in the community though at night he runs through the woods with his pack of wolves and hones his hunting skills. The miners start to see what kind of man Cookie Malone is, and he blames Logan for his fall from grace. One night he cuts the fuses short on some dynamite, and soon Logan and few others gets buried in a cave in. Yet Logan miracolously survives. Inspired by a book about japanese Samurais, Logan seeks out Cookie, beats him up and tells him to never cross him again. Proud of himself, Logan returns to Rose, but finds her in Smitty’s arms, fully in love with each other. Logan runs away into the woods and in his anger battles the alpha wolf for leadership of the pack. Of course he wins. Back at the Howlett estate the old Mr. Howlett is very ill and sees the error of his ways. He asks Dog, too fully grown up and his face scarred, to track down his grandson James, aka Logan.
