Description

Did you ever wonder where life would lead you if you truly followed your passion? Joe LaFlamme not only wondered about it, he lived his passion to the limit. When, in 1920, he settled in Gogama, in remote Northern Ontario, he discovered a passion for the wild animals of the boreal forest. Taming wolves soon turned him into a legend, his fame spreading throughout Canada and the United States. Yet he himself remained untamed and unstoppable.Imagine a strapping Canadian trapper raising timber wolves to draw the sleigh; mushing his wolf team in the heart of big cities such as Montreal, Toronto, Boston, and even on Broadway in New York; travelling by plane with unleashed wolves; bringing his moose to ABC radio for an interview, to posh banquet rooms for a salad, and even to the local pub for a beer.Not only did Wolf Man Joe LaFlamme's passion lead him to tempt fate by rubbing shoulders with wild beasts, he also defied the law by bootlegging moonshine to make ends meet and spice up his life.LaFlamme's biographer, Suzanne F. Charron, has done extensive research to bring his story back to life and establish the Wolf Man in the canon of Canadian legends.
