Author Nick Jans has just published A Wolf Called Romeo about the black wolf which captivated Juneau residents for seven winters, before being illegally taken by a hunter in 2009.
Jans is the author of several books, and a contributing editor of Alaska Magazine. He’s been working in the state since 1979, when he traveled here with the intention of becoming a large-mammal biologist.
Jans spoke with KCAW’s Robert Woolsey about what he calls the “most transformative experience” of his life.
Nick Jans will be in Sitka this Sunday (7-20-14) signing his new book at Old Harbor books beginning at 11 AM. He’ll read selections beginning at 2 PM.
