First Sentence
IT IS A long way in time and space from the bathroom of my Grandmother Mowat's house in Oakville, Ontario, to the bottom of a wolf den in the Barren Lands of central Keewatin, and I have no intention of retracing the entire road which lies between. Read the first page

I first read Never Cry Wolf when I was about 10 or 12, and it is a book I have reread every five years or so since. At the time it changed my opinion of wolves from a typical "bloodthirty scarey creatures" to a more rounded opinion.
Mowat's unscientific techniques and his dry sense of humour liven up the book and make it an entertaining, as well as an informative, read.
It is also a case-in-point of how men have blamed other animals for their own depredations - in this case the wolves were being blamed for the sudden slaughter of Canadian caribou in the 1960s. (This same thing still happens today - seals are blamed on the Scottish coast for the sudden disappearance of large fish stocks. Hmmm.)
"Never Cry Wolf" has been one of my all-time-favourite books - I could recommend it to both adults and teenagers.

Format: Paperback
Sent by a government agency to establish the facts against the arctic wolf, by proving that it was a resolute and unflinching killer of caribou, the youthful Mowat actually discovered (for what was not to be the only time in his life) that man was the only serious threat in the North and that the wolf was quietly feasting on mice instead of "deer". A heart-rending tale, told by a true believer in all things animal and human, this is a book which should be compulsory reading for all schoolchildren. Mowat has done us a great service by pointing out that we cannot continue to treat the natural world as if its many denizens were of no importance, even to us. Finding out the truth about the wolf also helped Mowat, and us, find out something very important about ourselves; it's a lesson we need to learn and relearn and never forget. Never Cry Wolf will long remain a startling but lonely cry from a remote wilderness.

Format: Paperback
This book by the Canadian naturalist Farley Mowat, which was made into a film in 1983, is an account, often humorous, of Mowat's study of the natural behavior of the arctic wolf in the treeless environs of northern Canada in the late 1940s. He had been sent up there to study the wolf and bring back data on how much the wolf population had been the apparent cause of the large decline in the caribou population. What he discovered was a detailed family life and the controversial observation that there no threat at all for the caribou (or to humans) from the wolves. This book is a classic in conservation literature. It shows the love man has of nature and how we should protect it. As most ranchers will tell you, coyotes are much more of a problem than wolves and wolves help keep the coyote population down.

I read this book because I liked the movie. Luckily this was one of those rare movies that was made pretty true to the spirit of the book. Mowat mixes all kinds of descriptions and facts within the narrative, and it's all the more compelling because he wrote based on his own experience. I have gone on to read every Mowat book I can find...

I was introduced to this book by word of mouth some years ago, and would highly recommend it. A lovely story, based on Farley Mowat's real life experiences in Alaska. Having been posted to this remote location in Alaska, as a punishment of sorts, to report on the wolves, and their destruction of caribou, he makes witty 'subtle' observations on the reality - man's demonising of the wolves... and the human hunters' responsibility for the slaughter of the caribou - not the wolves! This is a very heartwarming read, and at times I found myself laughing out loud at Farley's dry, witty observations and remarks. Thoroughly recommended.

I gave Never Cry Wolf 5 stars beacuse it gave you an intimate relationship with wolves, not their blood thirsty myth. The wolf is not a blood thirsty kill everything in sight lone working creatures, but great parents, are wily, curios, clever,and intielligent. Another aspect I enjoyed about the book is it's portrayl with the wolves. The eskimos respect and will never harm wolves, and some may even be able to communicate with wolves. You will also enjoy Farley Mowats re-lived adventure. 'Never Cry Wolf' is a great book and you will not regret reading it.

Great production of this wonderful story! MOWAT is an outstanding writer. He has a wonderful feel for nature & his writing is both very funny & yet,at the same time,its also truly gripping. Much more enjoyable than the Disney film adaptation.Manages to cover the demise of the Inuit way of life & also the disgusting way man has treated one of the worlds most amazing & misunderstood animals..the great Arctic Wolf.Surely its time Man treated this top mammal with more respect & give it the protection it deserves?

If you are looking for a good adventure in the nature book, this is it. Those who like dry humor will find it great. Aside from being wonderfully hilarious, it also shows a deeper perspective on the wolf-human relationship and the sad misconception about the typical stereotype of the wolf. Farley Mowatt truly is a great writer; his novels about animals show a man of great talent. However, I recommend this book to teens and adolescents, rather than adults. So if you are over 20, don't bother.
