    A recent read of Chandler Brett s excellent novel A Sheltering Wilderness, the first volume of his projected Wolf Code trilogy, brought to mind this nonfiction book which I read decades ago, and which is a groundbreaking classic in the field study of wolves in the wild My wife and I read it together, and both found it not only fascinating but enormously educational It s one of many pre Goodreads nonfiction books I haven t made time to re

    We have doomed the wolf not for what it is, but for what we deliberately and mistakenly perceive it to be the mythologized epitome of a savage ruthless killer which is, in reality, no than a reflected image of ourself Farley Mowat, Never Cry WolfOne of those books that if fun to review because my feelings about it change depending on how I look at it As a pure book of science reporting writing, it is probably a noble failure As a inf

    I picked this up due to fond memories of viewing the 1983 movie in biology class In this 1963 book, naturalist Farley Mowat chronicles his experiences observing wolves in the Canadian barrenlands 1948 49 I have mixed feelings about the book On the plus side it presented a positive image of wolves and stirred interest in their preservation However, as a scientist I m put off by the embellishments Mowat throws in both to make the story entertaining and

    This book was originally written in 1963 and my 30th anniversary edition had a new preface by the author in which he said his practice was never to allow facts to interfere with the truthhumor has a vital place in helping us understand our lives So do we allow this statement to color our judgment of this book Is it a true story or an embellished one or a totally made up one Did Mowat really go into the wild and live with wolves the way he said he did Did he see the behav
