Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This volume of correspondence among the Wright brothers, family members, and others is also a chronicle of their building of the first successful airplanes and their historic early flights.
Booknews
An excellent compilation of photographs and text capturing various types of wolves living in national parks and documenting their life cycles. This new revised edition explores the reintroduction of wolves into Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks, discussing possible wolf restoration in the Northeast and Southwest. Two introductions by Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell and Jay D. Hair, President of the National Wildlife Federation, attest to the significance of this excellent resource volume. Annotation c.
