Never Cry Wolf : Amazing True Story of Life Among Arctic Wolves
Never Cry Wolf : Amazing True Story of Life Among Arctic Wolves - Farley Mowat The story looks like following- wolves are suspected of killing wild arctic caribou. Mowat is assigned to discover the truth and investigate the issue. He goes to cold and dense tundra to live alone among pack of wild wolves. However, he doesn't perceive them as killing monsters or deadly weapon. He finds a common language with them.Mowat says an interesting story, he observed the family of wolves, gave them names and got really close to them. He somehow immersed into this wild world, he adjusted to the rules that the wolves gave to his. He wasn't a master there any more, he was on wolves's land and he showed them respect and tells us their story. It is really superbly written, entertaining and informative. High four stars !
