Travel In The Mouth Of The Wolf is a wryly written novel that blends elements of mysticism and even science fiction into a life-affirming journey. When a freak accident renders an easygoing young man deaf, he decides to take control of his life by traveling to Antarctica. On the way he encounters a bevy of unusual individuals. Twin little girl psychics seek to wrest control of the future of humanity's destiny, while the hidden secrets of a frozen dinosaur carcass may yet contain clues to make scientists dream. Part fable, part creation myth, always engaging and lyrical, Travel In The Mouth Of The Wolf is a mentally stimulating whirlwind journey from first page to last.
