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.

“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.”
