No stranger to wildlife, Nick Jans had lived in Alaska for nearly thirty years. But when one evening at twilight a lone black wolf ambled into view not far from his doorstep, Nick would finally come to know this mystical species—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, engaging in an improbable, awe-inspiring interspecies dance and bringing the wild into sharp focus. At first the people of Juneau were guarded, but as Romeo began to tag along with crosscountry skiers on their daily jaunts, play fetch with local dogs, or simply lie near Nick and nap under the sun, they came to accept Romeo, and he them.

Written with a deft hand and a searching heart, A Wolf Called Romeo is an unforgettable tale of a creature who defied nature and thus gave humans a chance to understand it a little more.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A wild wolf that became part of the author’s life on the fringe of suburban Juneau, an animal not only tolerant of humans but also downright friendly to dogs…Woven through Romeo’s story is the larger tale of humans and wolves, of close contact and fear, of wolves and dogs, and of an animal that lives both beyond and among us. As in Jans’ previous works, the writing is both lyrical and factual, and through Jans’ pen, we feel the crisp Alaska twilight and see the breeze ruffle Romeo’s black coat.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Insightful and philosophical, Jans probes the boundaries between wilderness and civilization and our responsibilities to the untamed creatures in our midst.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Jans is an exceptional storyteller—no nature writer can top him in terms of sheer emotional force—and he frames even the smallest moment with haunting power.”

    New York Times

  • An Amazon Best Book of the Month
