Imagine a strapping Canadian trapper raising timber wolves to pull his sleigh; mushing them down Bay Street and Broadway; travelling by plane with untethered and un-caged wolves; surviving wolf mutinies and a plane crash; trucking a live moose to the International Order of the Moose convention in Ohio; accompanying his moose to a tourist show on ABC radio in New York--and now imagine that simultaneously he is bootlegging his moonshine to make ends meet and spice up his life in the north country bush of Gogama, midway between Sudbury and Timmins. Well, no need to imagine. Joe "Wolf Man" LaFlamme did all this and more during the 20s, 30s, and 40s. His love of boreal forest animals combined with his own untamed spirit to turn him into a true Canadian "original" whose story Suzanne F. Charron has recovered from over 265 almost forgotten media articles. Supported by a selection of remarkable photos, Wolfman Joe LaFlamme: Tamer Untamed introduces Joe to new generations of readers, and into the canon of Canadian legends.
