There are a couple of books (one about wolves; one about bears) that I read decades ago that I'd like to reread. I don't know the authors, I don't know the titles, but I could describe them in enough detail so that anyone who had read them would recognize them.
Obviously, I will do some serious Googling first, but if that fails, would a question here be on topic or not?
(These are not biology books; they are definitely TGO-type books.)
This is not a duplicate of Is asking for recommendations of books ok? because, to quote @Chenmunka
[that question] asks about recommending any book on a subject, this question is about finding a specific lost book.
