Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Trina Heidt
This book provides a straightforward look at the true nature of this ever-mysterious group of predators. What we know about wolves, or rather what we think we know, is based mainly on myths and legends rather than researched facts and actual observations. The information provided here intends to inform its readers as to the realities of wolf life including predatory habits, mating habits, territorial markings, and communication practices, among various wolf packs. Though revered by some cultures, the relationship between humans and wolves has been extremely touchy for centuries. Because they are so largely misunderstood, wolves have continually been indiscriminately persecuted. Hopefully, this book with its true-to-life illustrations can be one more step in bridging the gap of understanding and appreciation between humans and the surprisingly similar wolf.
