Synopsis

Black Wolf of the Glacier Alaska's Romeo by Deb Vanasse

In 2003, Alaskans fell for a lolloping, dog-friendly wolf they named Romeo. Left without a pack, this lone wolf found a new family among Juneau's domestic dogs and their owners, who became enamored with his striking looks and friendly demeanor. For years he remained a constant companion to residents of Juneau and their dogs, becoming a familiar and sociable presence in their lives. While his unusual tale had a tragic end, his legacy of respect and trust lives on. Black Wolf of the Glacier tells the story of this beloved legend through the eyes of Shawna, whose dog becomes best friends with Romeo. While initially afraid, Shawna ultimately learns to love the benevolent wolf. When Romeo goes missing, Shawna begins a determined search to find him, bringing readers along for the adventure. Deb Vanasse's heartfelt prose and Nancy Slagle's charming illustrations will delight Romeo's many fans and capture the hearts of readers new to the story. Black Wolf of the Glacier beautifully captures the soul of Remeo's story and celebrates the bonds we still form with our wild world.
