Jans tells the story in an almost conversational manner coupled with insight into wolves, what it means to be " wild, " humans, and how the two relate.

It ’ s a fair and balanced telling by a woma who trapped and hunted them once, of what happened when a lone, and very massive black wolf, decided to embrace a community of people living up against wilderness, apparently because he was lonely and trie to interact with their dogs.

Havin a lawyer ( jd cadidate as of th writing) it is sad someone did n't step in as an activis for the wolf and use back channels like Romeo 's killer 's lawyer did.

There are comfortable level portions that are informative, and provide reader to rest his heart rate until it comes back to walking, talking, and interacting with the wolf called Romeo.

Another is a lovely retellin of th most precious black beauty wolf that had a wonderful bond with humans dogs.

He was loved by many with exceptions of those few wolf hating jerks around.
