Meet the Author

Anne Dominique Menatory was born in Ales (Gard) in 1958.  Her father was the legendary Gerard Menatory, environmentalist and naturalist of worldwide renown and founder of Gevaudan Park, an animal reserve in the Massif Central region of France, created in 1985 for the study and protection of wolves.  Gerard Menatory dedicated about 40 years of his life to studying canis lupus, following the species at every latitude, in semi-freedom, within vast fenced in areas, until he completed his series of experiments with the so called "imprinting" learning process on the wolf cub.  Even though personal enthusiasms are not genetically inherited Anne Dominique's interest in wolves is without doubt the result of her father's influence, with whom she worked side by side in his research and administration of the nature reserve for many years.

Upon Gerard's death in 1998, Anne Dominique took over running the park, thus carrying on her illustrious father's work and fighting for the survival of one of the most highly endangered species in Europe.  She has participated in numerous conferences dealing with environmental issues and has dedicated some of her works to other canine species, such as the African hunting dog, which she has studied during her travels in East Africa.  She has collaborated with the Museum of Natural History in Paris and with  Famous documentary directors like Bruno Vienne, with whom she made the feature film Brother Wolf, distributed by National Geographic throughout the world.  She has also worked with a variety of environmental organizations and many specialized magazines.

This book was a gift and the buyer was seduced by the alluring cover and the photos inside for which I rate the books as 'Okay.' Having been involved with wolves for 15 years, I've learned a thing or two and just glancing through it I found contradictory statements and incorrect information. There are photo credits but no no bibliography of source material which a book of this sort should have. The books listed below are well worth reading for photos and content.
