I remember reading this book when I was younger. At the time I was enduring some pretty awful abuse, and connected with the picture of a mother wolf, who looked so lovingly at a human boy, in a book I read as a child. I wondered what it meant to be loved. All my life I asked God for a wolf that loved me. Years later I was a troubled man, in my early twenties. My friends were criminals and cared nothing for me. I was into drugs, anything I could do to escape the reality of my tortured soul. One day a friend told me about a wolf sanctuary... I went there and bonded to a wolf who was segregated because of his aggressiveness. Only a hand full of people were allowed in with him. One day I saw the warm glow in his eyes and I asked the owner to go in with him. I begged her for weeks when she finally let me in. Our bond was immediate- and forever. We wrestled together, ate together, and fell asleep next to one another. He became my fierce protector, my teacher, and my best friend. He was my dream come true. I quit the drugs, severed ties with dangerous people, and began to live my life for God. If I ended up dead or in prison I wouldn't see him again. God used a wolf to save my life. I might not have had the desire to befriend a wolf in the first place had it not of been for this book. Having spent a decade with captive wolves, I can tell you that everything in the book is true. Naihani's mannerisms, her affections, the way she ran her pack- I have seen all of these things in my wolf, and the wolves in the sanctuary. Only a true story could resonate with my experiences. Reading this book again has rekindled my love of wolves. Wolf lover or not, this is an amazing, beautiful, haunting book. It's worth your time to read it. I highly recommend it. You will not be disappointed. If anyone knows anything about the whereabouts of the man, Gregory Tah-Kloma let me know if possible.
