Cover art by Jack Endewelt. Exploding the centuries old myths about wolves... When the government sent Farley Mowat north to investigate the mass slaughter of arctic caribou and deer, it was widely believed that the wolves were responsible for the killing. But as Mowat came to learn the way of these misunderstood predators, he came to conclude that it was human hunters, not wolves, who posed the real threat. Never Cry Wolf is Mowat's heartfelt cry for an understanding of the natural world and a brilliant narrative on the myths and stereotypes of wild wolves - a message that was stunning and groundbreaking when it was first published and remains fresh and compelling today... Directed by Carroll Ballard, this was filmed in 1983, starring Charles Martin Smith and Brian Dennehy.. Eighth Printing. Soft Cover. Very Good. Illus. by Jack Endewelt;.

Never Cry Wolf is a book by Canadian author Farley Mowat, first published in 1963 by McClelland and Stewart. It was adapted into a moderately successful movie of the same name in 1983. It has been credited for dramatically changing the public image of the animal to a more positive one. It is presented as a first-person narrative of Mowat's research into the nature of the Arctic Wolf; however, there is some debate over how much of the book is indeed factual.
