Wild Animus

A novel by

In the summer of 1969, a disillusioned Berkeley graduate leaves behind a world of protests and riots to follow a wild, inner calling. Sam Altman is an intense young man whose unleashed and increasingly unhinged imagination takes him first to Seattle and then farther north, to the remote Alaskan wilderness. Sam has fallen deeply in love with the mysterious and powerful Lindy, a young woman who understands his quest, and who will do anything to help him realize it - no matter how bizarre or dangerous. On the unforgiving ridges of Mt. Wrangell, alone with a driving need to uncover his innermost self, Sam, who has renamed himself Ransom, gradually transforms himself into a ram - prey to a pack of strangely familiar wolves. The mad pursuit leads from the wilds to civilization and back again. And when Sam and Lindy return to brave the perilous mountain together, the truth behind his imagined transformation emerges. What they discover in those frozen heights threatens their love as well as their sanity and their lives.
