Read full description of the books:
When Ceiridwen Terrill adopts a wolfdog—part husky, part gray wolf—named Inyo to be her protector and fellow traveler, she is drawn to Inyo’s spark of wildness and compelled by the great responsibility, even danger, that accompanies the allure of the wild. She feels transformed by the extraordinary love she shares with Inyo, who teaches Terrill how to carve out a place for herself in the world. Over almost four years, Terrill and Inyo’s adventures veer between hilarious and heartbreaking. There are peaceful weekends spent hiking in snowy foothills, mirthful romps through dirty laundry, joyful adoptions of dog companions, and clashes brought on by the stress of caring for Inyo, insatiable without the stimulation of a life lived outdoors. Forced to move and weigh the complaints of fearful neighbors against the desires of her space-craving wolfdog, Terrill must confront the reality of what she has done by trying to tame a part-wild animal.
A gifted writer able to capture the grace and power of the natural world, the complexity of scientific ideas, and the pulse of the human experience, Terrill has written a bittersweet memoir of the beauty and tragedy that come from living with a measure of wildness.

Read information about the authorI’m a writer and adventurer who loves to tell stories about humans and animals sharing home ground. I also write about people I admire who do important work on behalf of wildlife, trying to make a way for animals despite shrinking and fragmented habitats. I hope these stories inspire people to be better humans on the planet, because animals need all the help they can get.
I explore my own human foibles through memoir and science as I figure out how to live on the urban-wild border of Portland, Oregon’s 5,000-acre Forest Park. My home sits on city-protected lands that I share with elk, deer, beaver, coyote, pygmy and barred owls.
At Concordia University in Portland, I teach environmental journalism and science writing. When I’m not writing and teaching, I’m sailing the San Juans, jumping horses, topping out on Mount Hood, free-climbing through the narrow slot canyons of Utah, wildcrafting medicinal plants, or backpacking with Argos, my 100% pure American street dog.
