Wild Animus is a search for the primordial test of a human foundation, and a journey to the breaking point. This is a story of love and sacrifice, of obsession, of finding the limits of the heart and going one step farther.

"How far would you go to find yourself? In Rich Shapero's debut novel, a young man rejects a normal life to follow a wild, inner calling." "Sam Altman, disillusioned with the world of the 60s, has fallen deeply in love with the mysterious Lindy, a young woman who inspires him to seek the foundations of his heart. She understands his quest, and will do anything to help him realize it - no matter how dangerous." "Sam's unleashed and increasingly unhinged imagination drives them north to the remote Alaskan wilderness. On the unforgiving ridges of Mt. Wrangell, alone with his wayward ideas, Sam, who has renamed himself Ransom, gradually transforms himself into a ram - prey to a pack of strangely familiar wolves." "The mad pursuit leads from the wilds to civilization and back again. And when Ransom and Lindy return to brave the perilous mountain together, the truth behind his imagined transformation emerges. What they discover in those frozen heights threatens their love as well as their sanity and their lives." Wild Animus is a search for the primordial and a journey to the breaking point. It is a story of love and sacrifice, of obsession, of finding the limits of the heart and going one step farther.

--My copy is a paperback, not a hardcover--

In the summer of 1969, a disillusioned Berkeley graduate leaves behind a world of protests and riots to follow a wild, inner calling. Sam Altman is an intense young man whose unleashed unhinged imagination takes him first to Seattle and then farther north, to the remote Alaskan wilderness.

Sam has fallen deeply in love with the mysterious and powerful Lindy, a young woman who understands his quest, and who will do anything to help him realize it--no matter how bizarre or dangerous. On the unforgiving ridges of Mt. Wrangell, alone with his reckless ideas and a driving need to uncover his innermost self, Sam, who has renamed himself Ransom, gradually transforms himself into a ran--prey to a pack of strangely familiar wolves.

The mad pursuit leads from the wilds to civilization and back again. And when Sam and Lindy return to brave the perilous mountain together, the truth behind his imagined transformation emerges. What they discover in those frozen heights threatens their love as well as their sanity and their lives.
