    Summary:

    "Required reading for anyone invested in our shared future with these powerful and complex creatures." -John Vaillant, author of The Tiger and The Golden Spruce
     
    Growing up on a northern trap line, Harold Johnson was taught to keep his distance from wolves. For decades, wolves did the same for humans. But now this seems to be changing. In 2005, twenty-two-year-old Kenton Carnegie was killed in a wolf attack near his work camp. Part story, part forensic analysis, Cry Wolf examines this and other attacks, showing how we fail to take this apex predator seriously at our own peril.
     
    "A crucial and timely examination of our shifting relationship to the land in general and the Canis lupus in particular." -Eden Robinson, author of Son of a Trickster
     
    "Insightful . . . . Johnson eloquently argues that Traditional Ecological Knowledge and the wisdom of Indigenous people can help us better understand the true nature of predators such as wolves." -Cristina Eisenberg, PhD, author of The Wolf's Tooth and The Carnivore Way
