More About Wolf Called Romeo by Nick Jans
 
 
 
Overview
Jans is an exceptional storyteller no nature writer can top him in terms of sheer emotional force. "New York Times" "A Wolf Called Romeo" is the true story of the exceptional black wolf who spent seven years interacting with the people and dogs of Juneau, Alaska, living on the edges of their community, engaging in an improbable, awe-inspiring interspecies dance, and bringing the wild into sharp focus. When Romeo first appeared, author Nick Jans and the other citizens of Juneau were wary, but as Romeo began to tag along with cross-country skiers on their daily jaunts, play fetch alongside local dogs, or simply lie near Nick and nap under the sun on a quiet afternoon, Nick and the rest of Juneau came to accept Romeo, and he them. 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. Beautifully written, "A Wolf Called Romeo "is a thoughtful and moving story about one of nature s most evocative animals. Patricia McConnell, author of "The Other End of the Leash" Jans is a perfect narrator for this story. He s deeply knowledgeable about the Alaskan wilderness and he evokes its harsh beauties in powerful and poetic prose . . . A tingling reminder of the basic bond that occasionally spans the space between two species. "Christian Science Monitor" NICK JANS is an award-winning writer, photographer, and author of numerous books, including "The Grizzly Maze." He is a contributing editor to "Alaska "magazine and has written for a variety of publications, including "Rolling Stone" and the "Christian Science Monitor.""
