Never Cry Wolf by Farley Mowat

Hordes of bloodthirsty wolves are slaughtering the arctic caribou, and the government's Wildlife Service assigns naturalist Farley Mowat to investigate. Mowat is dropped alone onto the frozen tundra, where he begins his mission to live among the howling wolf packs and study their ways. Contact with his quarry comes quickly, and Mowat discovers not a den of marauding killers but a courageous family of skillful providers and devoted protectors of their young. As Mowat comes closer to the wolf world, he comes to fear with them the onslaught of bounty hunters and government exterminators out to erase the noble wolf community from the Arctic. Never Cry World is one of the brilliant narratives on the myth and magic of wild wolves and man's true place among the creatures of nature. From Goodreads.

I enjoyed this story about Mowat's first meeting with wolves. It is a fun story and at the same time highlighting humans fear of this brilliant animal. It says it is a true story but a lot of other reviews are questioning this. To me it is not that important whether it is a true story or loosely based on Mowat's experiences and mostly fiction. Whichever it is, it is a fascinating story about wolves.
