    this is a fantastic and mournful story. my sole grievance lies with the author's insistence on referring to some lesser state of consciousness among earth's wild creatures. he consistently asserts an assumption that not only the wolf but various other animals possess an inability to comprehend self-awareness, mortality, compassion, vengeance, woe, etc, unless of course such endowments of emotion are predicated upon an acknowledgement of similarities between animal instinct and human sentiment. h this is a fantastic and mournful story. my sole grievance lies with the author's insistence on referring to some lesser state of consciousness among earth's wild creatures. he consistently asserts an assumption that not only the wolf but various other animals possess an inability to comprehend self-awareness, mortality, compassion, vengeance, woe, etc, unless of course such endowments of emotion are predicated upon an acknowledgement of similarities between animal instinct and human sentiment. he seems too afraid to anthropomorphize without providing some kind of disclaimer. i only wish he would have indulged his obviously natural poetic disposition, which does haunt the text with beautiful intimacy, mysticism, and sense of place, more fully and without the crutch of scientific judgment.

    Part fictional illustration of the natural lives of wolves and part nonfiction about a lone wolf who killed at least a thousand or so livestock animals over many years while eluding massive efforts by man to hunt, trap, and poison him. The words of Ron Swanson’s review of Moby Dick feel right: “No fru-fru symbolism. Just a good, simple tale about a man who hates an animal.”

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I enjoyed this right up to about halfway through, though it was a bit boring. Sadly the book ends with the wolf's death by the ranchers. I enjoyed this right up to about halfway through, though it was a bit boring. Sadly the book ends with the wolf's death by the ranchers.

    One of the saddest, most beautifully written works I've ever read. One of the saddest, most beautifully written works I've ever read.

    This book is actually dated earlier then the dates provided here. There is no ISBN number provided on the book. The Copyright date is 1966. The book is in hard cover format. The dust cover is in decent shape, though partially torn. It's what I would expect for a book that was printed in 1966 and though well cared for still has some blemishes.

    I read this book when I was perhaps 13 or 14, then again in my twenties. It holds a very special place in my heart, possibly purely for sentimental reasons.
