Cry Wolf: Inquest Into the True Nature of a Predator by Harold R. Johnson is a search for the truth. It is part story and part forensic analysis. Cry Wolf examines wolf attacks and how we fail to take wolves seriously at our own peril. This book is also a relationship to the land and with wolves in particular yet Cry Wolf also draws on Indigenous traditional knowledge and wisdom regarding ecology to better understand predators. The introduction outlines the current perspective of predators. Parts one to four discuss earlier wolf encounters, the fatal attack on Kenton Carnegie and the inquest. Other explanations are also explored including what Elders say. Cry Wolf is supported by cited works, an index and information about the author.
