Never Cry Wolfby Farley Mowat
Synopses & Reviews
More than a half-century ago the Canadian Wildlife Service assigned the naturalist Farley Mowat 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 the wolves (who were of no threat to caribou or man) and for a friendly Inuit tribe known as the Ihalmiut ("People of the Deer") — is a work that has become cherished by generations of readers, and indelible record of the myths and magic of wold wolves.
By enquiring into the puzzle of sibling relations, Frank J. Sulloway pioneers a new view of how family affects individual development. He shows that birth-order is so fundamental to the family that it transcends gender, class and nationality.
The classic of nature writing--the spellbinding story of adventures among arctic wolves--is now available in a new paperback edition.
About the Author
Farley Mowat has recorded his experiences in several highly successful books for both adults and children, including People of the Deer, The Dog Who Wouldn't Be, The Desperate People, A Whale for the Killing, and The Boat Who Wouldn't Float.
