New from Nick Jans!

A retelling of Romeo the wolf’s true saga in a unique photo storybook meant to be savored and shared. Combining Nick’s own images with his trademark prose, this 64-page, beautifully crafted hardcover book expands on the story of Juneau’s friendly wolf in a luminous, visual flow, accessible to readers of all ages.

Author’s Note

More than a decade ago, I completed A Wolf Called Romeo, the saga of the exceptional black wolf who socialized with dogs and people in Juneau, Alaska from 2003-2009. As years have passed, his story trots onward. This telling, through words and color images combined, reflects an attempt to capture this profound experience in all its dreamlike, lucid flow and to add perspective that can only come with time. All but a few of the images are mine, taken with a variety of camera gear, most of which would be considered quaint by today’s standards: a mix of slide film and early digital. All bear witness to the story as we lived it.

“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.”
