Wolves Eat Elk

Alex has just finished a summer of dissertation research in the Minnesota woods and is eager to get back to his boyfriend at school when he finds himself trapped in the surreal world of Elk Kingdom.  The Elk need him to complete a strange and specific task before he can leave: tame the wolf that is threatening their herd.  Alex wrestles with what the Elk ask of him and the implications for both the ecosystem and his journey home.
