Publisher's Summary

No stranger to wildlife, Nick Jans had lived in Alaska for nearly 30 years. But when one evening at twilight a lone black wolf ambled into view not far from his doorstep, Nick would finally come to know this mystical species - up close as never before. A Wolf Called Romeo is the remarkable story of a wolf who returned again and again to interact with the people and dogs of Juneau, engaging in an improbable, awe-inspiring interspecies dance and bringing the wild into sharp focus. At first the people of Juneau were guarded, but as Romeo began to tag along with cross-country skiers on their daily jaunts, play fetch with local dogs, or simply lie near Nick and nap under the sun, they came to accept Romeo, and he them. Written with a deft hand and a searching heart, A Wolf Called Romeo is an unforgettable tale of a creature who defied nature and thus gave humans a chance to understand it a little more.

Taking Responsibility

Very well written. Including the information on the plight of wolves, and misperceptions about them. This info was important to include in the story because it is the foundation upon which the controversies in the story (and all human & wolf encounters) take place.

North Carolinian who loved Romeo

Why do the worlds most perfect and beautiful creatures always come to this end? I know one should take stock in the miraculous being and his time here on earth but I can't help but feel as though the real "wolf" (both Park Myers and Jeff Peacock) always come out unscathed. I knew before I read the book that Romeo was murdered but the details of death are heart breaking. I am left wondering what can we do as a concerned human to better protect wild animals and habitat.
