Wolf Totem


Winner of the 2007 Man Asian Literary Prize and a sensation in China in 2004, this is an epic Chinese tale of a Beijing intellectual sent to live among the nomads of Inner Mongolia-the ancestors of the Mongol hordes who at one time terrorized the world. His fictionalized firsthand account depicts the dying culture of the Mongols and the parallel extinction of the animal they believe to be sacred: the fierce and otherworldly Mongolian wolf. "The Call of the Wild meets Dersu Uzala in the wilds of Inner Mongolia...a stirring allegorical critique of Chinese civilization."
