Advance praise for A Wolf Called Romeo

"A Wolf Called Romeo is one of the best books I ve read in a great many years. It gives heart-wrenching insight into an amazing animal, important insight into the shining side of our relationship with that animal, and important if bitter insight into the dark side . . . Riveting, a real page-turner one that years from now you will remember in all its detail. If you have only the time to read one book, read this one." Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, author of The Hidden Life of Dogs and A Million Years with You

"Beautifully written, A Wolf Called Romeo is a thoughtful and moving story about one of nature s most evocative animals. Be forewarned: I read it cover to cover in one sitting late into the night. The author owes me a good night s sleep, but it was well worth it." Patricia McConnell, author of The Other End of the Leash

"The compelling, grounded account of a black wolf that stepped forward in the half-light between wilderness and civilization and the people who met him there. From the powerful first moments to a hard-won conclusion that becomes our journey too, A Wolf Called Romeo is a book that carries long after the last page is turned." Susannah Charleson, author of Scent of the Missing and The Possibility Dogs

Nota de la solapa:

The unlikely true story of a six-year friendship between a wild, oddly gentle black wolf and the people and dogs of Juneau, Alaska Nick Jans had lived in Alaska for nearly thirty years, as close as one could be to the wild. During that time he developed a particular, abiding fascination: wolves. Of course, mankind has long been entranced by these near-mythical creatures. But not until one evening at twilight, when a lone black wolf ambled into view not far from his own doorstep, did Nick Jans finally come to know the creature who had captured his imagination all those years up close as never before.

A Wolf Called Romeo is the remarkable story of a wolf who returned again and again to interact with the people and dogs of Juneau, living on the edges of their community, engaging in an improbable, awe-inspiring interspecies dance. At first the people of Juneau were guarded, torn between shoot-first-ask-questions-later instincts and curiosity. But as Romeo began to tag along with cross-country skiers on their daily jaunts, play fetch with local dogs, or simply lie and nap under the sun alongside his trusted human counterparts, they came to accept Romeo. For Nick, it was about trying to understand Romeo, then it was about winning his trust, and ultimately it was about watching over him, for as long as he or anyone could.

Written with a deft hand and a searching heart, A Wolf Called Romeo is an unforgettable tale of a creature who came in from the wild and gave humans a chance to understand it a little more. Part memoir, part moving animal narrative, part foray into the mystique, lore, science, and history of the wolf, A Wolf Called Romeo is a book no animal lover should miss."
