This international bestseller that changed the way we look at wolves "opens new horizons in understanding animal nature and intelligence" (Newsday).
In 1948, Farley Mowat landed in the far north of Manitoba, Canada, a young biologist sent to investigate the region's dwindling population of caribou. Many people thought that the caribous' conspicuous decline had been caused by the tundra's most notorious predator: the wolf. Alone among the howling canine packs, Mowat expected to find the bloodthirsty beasts of popular conception. Instead, over the course of a summer spent observing the powerful animals, Mowat discovered an animal species with a remarkable capacity for loyalty, virtue, and playfulness.

Praised for its humor and engrossing narrative, Never Cry Wolf describes a group of wolves whose interactions and behaviors seem strikingly similar to our own. Mowat humanizes these animals that have long been demonized, turning the widespread narrative of the "savage wolf" on its head and inspiring many governments to enact protective legislation for the North's most mysterious creature.
