China's runaway bestseller and winner of the inaugural Man Asian Literary Prize

Published in China in 2004, Wolf Totem has broken all sales records, selling millions of copies (along with millions more on the black market). Part period epic, part fable for modern days, Wolf Totem depicts the dying culture of the Mongols--the ancestors of the Mongol hordes who at one time terrorized the world--and the parallel extinction of the animal they believe to be sacred: the fierce and otherworldly Mongolian wolf. Beautifully translated by Howard Goldblatt, the foremost translator of Chinese fiction, this extraordinary novel is finally available in English.

Winner of the 2007 Main Asian Literary Prize
It is a story of the interaction of Mongols of the grasslands with the wolves that also live in the area. Illustrates very well the interelationship between the grasslands, wolves, horses, dogs, farmers and herders.

Very well written and a good read.
