    The Wolf

    I am an artist that does wildlife paintings and drawings. I bought the book mainly for reference concerning wolves. I use my own ideas as to subject and composition, so I will not be infringing on any copyright issues, but the photos in this book are so sharp and clear that I can use them for coloration and details of the wolf. I have not checked into this as yet but if Francesco Cesoni, and Giovanni Fasoli have made other compilations of photographs concerning different forms of wildlife, I will buy those as well.

    Definitely read this Wolf book!

    This books is excellent. It covers the past that has haunted the Wolves. It talks about their ways of life, such as their pups, pack structure, their methods of communication. It discusses human cultures that are inspired by them. It also has great photographs as well. I highly recommend this book for those who already love and fight for Wolves, and those who are curious about learning about them.
