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.

“Beautifully written, A Wolf Called Romeo is a thoughtful and moving story about one of nature’s most evocative animals. Be forewarned: I read it cover to cover in one sitting late into the night. The author owes me a good night’s sleep; but it was well worth it.”
