More than half a century ago, the naturalist Farley Mowat accepted an assignment 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 these wild creatures (who were no threat to caribou or man)  - is today celebrated as a classic of nature writing, at once a tale of remarkable adventure and an indelible record of the myths and magic of wolves. Never Cry Wolf was made into a major motion picture by Walt Disney Productions.

    " This was a must-read when I was about 18. Don't know what I'd think of it now but it made a big impression. "

    " My first book by Mowat but still one of my favourites. In recent years the truth of this book has come into question but the feel if not actual events are bang on. Great, fun, easy read. "

    " This is naturalist Farley Mowat's account of the summer he spent studying wolves in the Arctic tundra; originally published in 1963, it's considered a classic of nature writing. I really enjoyed this book -- the writing is engaging and the story is great. Interestingly, I wasn't always sure I believed some aspects of the author's account and, as with many memoirs, wondered just how selective and/or embellished his memory might be. It turns out that he has many detractors and there is some skepticism about his veracity; what remains authentic, though, are his then-groundbreaking conclusions about how wolves live and behave (and how humans have maligned them throughout history). His genuine affection for the wolves he studies rubs off on the reader, resulting in an absorbing, often moving, tale. "

    " A great movie, an even better book. Haven't read this book since high school, but still remember finding it entertaining, enlightening, and enriching (ran out of "en" words)... "
