• “This moving account will be recognized as a seminal work of philosophy that forces us to re-evaluate our view of the human animal.”

    John Gray, author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus
  • “A sort of autobiography mixed with wolf philosophy, human philosophy, and an exploration of the bonds between human and animal.”

  • “Not everyone can blend wildlife lore and Wittgenstein in an entertaining manner, but Rowlands has no trouble. Delightful and eye-opening.”

    Connnie Ogle, Miami Herald
  • “A snarly misanthrope, Rowlands recovered his own humanity by loving a noble beast and (with a little help from Aristotle, Descartes, and Jack Daniel’s) learning to howl at the moon.”

    O, The Oprah Magazine
  • “One of the most intense reading experiences of my life. It is a profound and beautiful book.”

    Jeffry Masson, author of When Elephants Weep
