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, an indelible record of the myths and magic of wild wolves.
"Never Cry Wolf is a pioneering book in restoring the good name of that maligned creature... Mowat is so enjoyable to read." - Edmund Fuller, Wall Street Journal
"Funny as well as fascinating. Mr. Mowat furnishes a great deal of entertainment in describign the idiocies of bureaucracy and his own adventures and misadventures in the Arctic wastelands." -Maurice Dolbier, New York Herald Tribune
