Mowat's plea to mankind from a remote wilderness.,
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Never Cry Wolf (Taschenbuch)
Sent by a government agency to establish the facts against the arctic wolf, by proving that it was a resolute and unflinching killer of caribou, the youthful Mowat actually discovered (for what was not to be the only time in his life) that man was the only serious threat in the North and that the wolf was quietly feasting on mice instead of "deer". A heart-rending tale, told by a true believer in all things animal and human, this is a book which should be compulsory reading for all schoolchildren. Mowat has done us a great service by pointing out that we cannot continue to treat the natural world as if its many denizens were of no importance, even to us. Finding out the truth about the wolf also helped Mowat, and us, find out something very important about ourselves; it's a lesson we need to learn and relearn and never forget. Never Cry Wolf will long remain a startling but lonely cry from a remote wilderness.
