Overview

The Sawtooth wolves live in a remote area of the Rocky Mountains in Idaho. Raised with people from a very early age, the wolves are comfortable with humans, and this has made it possible for Emmy-award winning cinematographer Jim Dutcher and a small crew of photographers and scientists to observe and film the natural behaviors of the wolves in close-up detail over a six-year period. The result, in , is an astonishing, uniquely intimate portrayal of the life of a wolf pack.

The Sawtooth Wolf Pack and their human friends have close bonds, but the wolves are not tame. They are not pets. The Sawtooth wolves are a fully functioning wolf pack and operate according to wolf rules.

A wolf pack is a tight-knit family, and pack members form strong bonds and allegiances with each other. Each wolf is an individual, with a distinct personality and character, and each wolf has a specific role within the pack. Hierarchy, dominance and submission, play, nurturing, bonding, communication--in The Sawtooth Wolves the complex and profound dynamics of wolves and the wolf pack are shown as never before.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in wolves and a corresponding change in public sentiment regarding them. Once feared as a dangerous predator who kills for the joy of killing, the wolf is now respected as a highly intelligent animal whose culture closely resembles that of humans. Both of these books aim to foster a new understanding of wolves by dispelling the negative myths and widespread misunderstanding that have given them an undeservedly bad reputation. In The Sawtooth Wolves, wildlife cinematographer Dutcher uses outstanding photography to convey his message. In a unique project, Dutcher and his crew lived in a wolf colony in Idaho for six yearsan arrangement that allowed photographers and scientists to observe wolves engaged in their daily lives, something rarely seen by humans. Although the wolves in this project were not tame, they were comfortable with their human companions and interacted with them, resulting in this unique look at the species. Wildlife biologist Hampton's The Great American Wolf is a scholarly history, tracing humankind's 400-year interaction with wolves in North America from their near extinction to their reintroduction into Yellowstone. The social structure of a wolf pack bears a striking resemblance to human society, and Hampton introduces his readers to well-known wolves with unique personalities. These two titles complement each other well and would appeal to wolf enthusiasts and those interested in animal behavior. Both are recommended.Deborah Emerson, Monroe Community Coll.
