A few months ago, I posted an interview with Howls from the Wolfpack author, Ronin. At the time I interviewed him, his latest book, Growls of a Wolf was in the final stages of editing and had not yet been released. I was fortunate enough to win an autographed copy of the book shortly after it came out and wasted no time digging in to the goods when it arrived…and if I were disappointed, it was only because the book ended before I was ready to be done reading.
“…The sheep begin to murmur
The ground underneath tremors
Some in fear, some in anger
The shepherd senses danger…”
“Growls” covers just about all of my favorite topics – freedom, politics, common sense…and more freedom. Now, to be honest with my readers, I knew before I ever cracked the cover that I would probably agree with most of the ideas Ronin presented in the book. I’ve followed his blog Ronin’s Journey, for about a year now & know from chatting in forums that we are like-minded thinkers so it was no great surprise when I found myself nodding my head in agreement as I read through the book.
Ronin writes in a very down-to-earth style; no-nonsense, no bullshit. As a fellow ‘pissed off independent’ I appreciate the moderate voice of reason…
“Pass laws on the actions that physically infringe on people’s rights like murder, assault, rape, stealing or endangering kids. The actions that only affect you by choice – stay out of it.”
“If the government slowdown (it’s not a shutdown) creates the aftershocks the masters of fear (politicians & their media talking heads) say it will, doesn’t that tell you the government is too big, and we who live under it are weak? It’s WE THE PEOPLE – not kneel before the Federal Government begging for your monthly stipend…”
While my favorite section of the book is the one on politics (huge surprise there, right?) I enjoyed all of the chapters & topics – from poetry to politics…focusing on Wolf Mentality, self-reliance, an independent mindset and way of living…Ronin delivers a dose of it all in his first solo book.
“Silent in the Shadows
Small animals scurry
Under my watchful stare
Wind rolls over me
As it moves along its way…”
If you are looking for a unique gift for a special liberty lover on your gift list, look no further. Better yet, make it a package deal and grab a copy of Howls from the Wolfpack and keep a book for yourself – I promise you will not be disappointed!
