If you love wolves, you will love this book. If you never thought about the plight of the wolf, you will after reading this book. Mr. Cera has written a touching and beautiful story of the wolves' plight in Montana and Idaho. You will realize how "family" oriented the wolves are within their pack, which is remarkable. A beautiful book well worth reading on a rainy day or a sunny day at the beach. More than 1 year ago
The wolf is a much-misunderstood animal, perhaps because of fairy tales about the big bad wolf. Russell M. Cera cuts through all the myths and introduces the reader to the real creature called wolf. "There is only one animal on this earth that kills for the sake of killing...and it is not the wolf." Unfortunately, man is ready to blame this noble animal for his own sins. Cera begins his tale with Dakota caught in a trap. Hearing wolf's cries Bartok the pack leader came to his assistance. The intelligent being searched for a way to release his brother from the cruel spikes embedded in this hind leg. He tried to protect his injured brother when he saw humans approaching with their death sticks. Jeffery Reese was writing an article on the reintroduction of wolves in the Bitterroot Mountains. He was asked to give Dakota a home while he recovers from the injury. He was drawn to the pack. He learned how intelligent they are, how they communicate with each other and their unique personalities. I am the proud owner of a beautiful German Shepherd. He is intelligent, loyal, entertaining, affectionate, and loving. My canine friend's tree leads back to wolves. We should be mindful of our loving pet's ancestors. Perhaps then we will look at the wolf in a different perspective. Cera pens quite a story. Cry Wolf, Cry, both entertains and educates the reader. I found myself reaching for the tissues as I came to know each of the pack members and their story. I loved the way the story was told from the point of view of the wolf. Well done, Mr. Cera.

This story really reached me! For the first time, I have an understanding and respect for a very misunderstood animal, the wolf. The characters in Russell Cera's CRY WOLF, CRY are real and I could feel Jeffrey Reese's anguish; I could understand John Dalton's pain and I could cry with Bartok, the black alpha wolf. I recommend CRY WOLF, CRY to anyone who wants to be enlightened and entertained from page one to the end of the book. I look forward to reading Cera's next book, FRUIT OF THE BAD SEED.

"Cry Wolf, Cry" by Russell Cera offers a refreshing and much-needed corrective to the long-standing stereotype of wolves as universally dangerous and wanton killers. It also accurately portrays the current intense conflict between wolf advocates on the one hand and ranchers and hunters on the other in the western U.S. This touching story of the impact of human love and hatred on one family of wolves in the Bitterroot Mountains of Idaho is sure to evoke deep feelings of empathy and grief among readers who are friends of wolves. I believe it will elicit similar strong sentiments from those who have not been fully aware of the ruthless determination of the many enemies of wolves to eradicate them completely--as has already been accomplished in many parts of the world. As a retired native of the backwoods of northern Minnesota, I consider it my great good fortune to live among the largest population of wolves in the lower 48 states. Seeing and hearing them regularly in their natural context has been deeply nourishing for me. Mr. Cera's emotionally moving portrayal of their family interrelationships and the major survival challenges they continuously face has significantly deepened my understanding and appreciation of them and has helped me to view the world more clearly through their eyes. This novel is a wonderful tribute to the noble ancestors of "man's best friend." I earnestly hope that it will get the wide readership it deserves and that it will help to preserve this seriously endangered species.
