In this homage to Jack London we have a 19th century Darwinian tale of the struggle for survival by a man and a wolf marooned on Zarembo Island. Situated in the panhandle of Alaska, Zarembo is an uninhabited island graced with a hideous cold, rainy climate, rugged terrain and insanely dense forest. This malevolent isle is no place anyone would wish to live, but this account explores man’s ability to regress to the stone-age conditions of Zarembo.
This story is an atavistic yarn revolving around the relationship between a man, sentenced to five years of penal servitude in the green hell of southeast Alaska, and a badly injured black wolf expelled from his pack. Both man and wolf are confronted by the distinct possibility of starvation as they struggle to live under the cruel, indifferent gaze of Zarembo Island. These hereditary enemies are initially bent on killing each other, but when this fails, the man-wolf relationship evolves from mutual fear to tolerance and, finally, to dependence and, perhaps, even affection.
