Tough Guy




Meet the hoary redpoll, ounce for ounce, one of the hardiest of all Alaska’s wild creatures. Instead of flying south for the winter, it braves temperatures down to 60 below zero through a variety of adaptations—including storing food in pouches under its tiny wings for midnight snacks, falling into a near-coma, then shivering itself awake.

“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.”
