More than half a century ago, the naturalist Farley Mowat accepted an assignment to investigate why wolves were killing Arctic caribou. Mowat’s account of the summer he lived in the frozen tundra alone – studying the wolf population and developing a deep affection for these wild creatures (who were no threat to caribou or man) – is today celebrated as a classic of nature writing, at once a tale of remarkable adventure and an indelible record of the myths and magic of wolves. Never Cry Wolf was made into a major motion picture by Walt Disney Productions.

A noble failure and a wild success

loved MOWAT'S curiously deep connection to self, with other persons, other creatures and his envirionment that has, ultimatly, brought about a change in the way we (human beings) make sense of the natural world. a wonderfully inspiring, humbling and thought provoking a book.
Sims was Mowat, great stuff!!
an extraordinary accout of one man's capacity for connection much much deeper than 'ordinary humanity'
