Description

More than half a century ago, the naturalist Farley Mowat accepted an assignment to investigate why wolves were killing Arctic caribou. Mowat’s account of the summer he lived in the frozen tundra alone – studying the wolf population and developing a deep affection for these wild creatures (who were no threat to caribou or man) – is today celebrated as a classic of nature writing, at once a tale of remarkable adventure and an indelible record of the myths and magic of wolves. Never Cry Wolf was made into a major motion picture by Walt Disney Productions.

Great story for long summer roadtrips

I first had this book read out loud to me by my Grade 6 teacher. I remembered loving it and when my kids became interested in wolves after a visit to a wolf sanctuary, I bought this for us to listen to on the drive to the cottage. They loved it and I had forgotten how funny it was. Mowat is a great story teller and the narrator was quite good as well. I only wish more of Mowat's books were available (The Dog Who Wouldn't Be, would be a great start)

wonderful

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

loved MOWAT'S curiously deep connection to self, with other persons, other creatures and his envirionment that has, ultimatly, brought about a change in the way we (human beings) make sense of the natural world. a wonderfully inspiring, humbling and thought provoking a book.

What did you like best about this story?

it's humanity

What does Adam Sims bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Sims was Mowat, great stuff!!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

an extraordinary accout of one man's capacity for connection much much deeper than 'ordinary humanity'

Any additional comments?

sublime

A hilarious challenge to accepted ways of thinking

What did you love best about Mowat: Never Cry Wolf?

It challenges you to examine your beliefs and why you believe them. And while you're doing so, you're laughing your head off. Mowat's dry wit lends itself wonderfully to the uncomfortable realization that we believe things simply because we were told to, not necessarily because they are true.

What did you like best about this story?

The story itself is beautiful, exciting and heart-touching, a tale that is far away and yet somehow still very close indeed.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The moment in which Mowat decides to reject all his previous knowledge of wolves (which had at that point been proven wrong to him anyway) and view them with a clean slate was particularly touching. Ultimately, that is one of the most difficult (and rewarding) things for humans to do; reject what is "known" for what can be discovered

Any additional comments?

I recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good story and a good laugh and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a challenge to their thinking, a change in perspective and an appreciation of the fact that often the most "human" behaviour in nature doesn't come from humans at all.

A noble failure and a wild success

One of those books that if fun to review because my feelings about it change depending on how I look at it. As a pure book of science reporting/writing, it is probably a noble failure. As a influential environmental book, it is probably a wild success.

It is controversial (STILL) and entertaining (STILL) and a piece of shit/scat and a piece of art. My kids loved it for all the wrong reasons and I probably hate parts of it for all the wrong reasons. So, yes, I'm glad I read it, but I also recognize that it wasn't perfect (sorry, not many Darwins out there).

A Funny Tale for the Whole Family

Farley Mowat is a naturalist. When he was young he had an amazing dog and two owls. He wrote about them both, 'Owls in the Family' and ;The Dog Who Wouldn't Be' . In this story, he writes about his experience dealing with bureaucracy and wolves. It is a laugh out loud tale of his study of a family of wolves who have an amazing family hierarchy. It includes an uncle, taking care of pups, who has a brief love affair with a husky. The end is very sad, the government decides to kill off many of the wolves, including those Farley had studied.
Please buy this book, you will learn an enormous amount about wolves and how a naturalist studies animals. Then Audible will release, 'Owls in the Family' and 'The Dog Who Wouldn't Be' .

Better Than the Movie

Learned a lot of new information about wolves that I never really picked up when the movie came out a very long time ago. Humorous. I wish he'd had a lot more time to study his wolves. Not surprised that the government totally ignored what he learned. It's always all about money and who's got it to spend. Great book though. Loved it.

Great story told with self deprecating humor

A government biologist lives next to a wolf family and learns some unbelievable things. Well told story that will amaze you. Second reading for me about 25 years apart.

A journey of recognition

I really appreciated this story and it's mindfulness of humankind's ignorance to other occupants of this planet.
I wish more reads like this were mandatory before owning a gun

Canadian treasure

The narration of this book was first rate. It was of perfect pace and quite clear. The book itself is incredibly satisfying Comparable to seven years in Tibet as far as adventure goes, and eliciting extreme compassion for our friends - the arctic wolves. This book should be inspirational for wildlife conservationists and naturalists.

A classic as relevant today

Sadly, the environmental mismanagement of the Canadian arctic is clearly and poiniently illustrated in the humorous and humanly told story. Farley Mowat is as exacting in his detail as he is humble in his conclusions. A beautiful tale of the irreplaceable wilderness.
