I was a young teenager when I first read this book. I was hooked on wolves from then on. The book is packed with insights on wolf behavior, government incompetence, humor and a little sadness. I still remember many of the humorous incidents related in the book, even after almost 50 years. The only reason I posted it here was that I recently bought a nice hardback copy at our local library sale.

After I read this book I delved into more wolf lore, and whenever "wolf" was mentioned in print or in conversation, my attention was riveted. Eventually, my interest lead to a B.S. in Wildlife and Fisheries.

If you like Mowat, you might also enjoy his World War II memoirs, "And No Birds Sang." I enjoyed that one and I now have his "The Dog That Wouldn't Be" on my TBR shelf and hope to get to it soon.
