Surprise Visitor




This lone musk ox bull showed up a couple hundred yards from my cabin in Ambler, a tiny Inupiaq Eskimo village on the upper Kobuk River. It was about the last thing I expected to see that day. Though generally homebodies, individuals like this bull sometimes travel far in search of new territory. Their normal habitat is on wind-blown steppes or along the western and arctic coasts.

“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.”
