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.

“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.”
