More About This Book

Overview

This enigmatic animal is more complex than the myths that surround it. With a shrinking wilderness and global warming, the future of the wolverine is uncertain. This paperback edition of The Wolverine Way reveals the fascinating natural history of the wolverine, and the habitat threats that face them, engagingly told by Douglas Chadwick, volunteer with the Glacier Wolverine Project. The project, a five-year study of the wolverines in Montana’s Glacier National Park, reveals key missing information about the wolverine’s habitat, social structure and reproduction habits. Wolverines, according to Chadwick, are the land equivalent of polar bears in regards to the impacts of global warming. The plight of wolverines adds to the call for wildlife corridors that connect existing habitat that is proposed by the Freedom to Roam coalition.

    A very inspiring animal who survives the harshest places.

    The Wolverine Way introduced me to this most beautiful and awesome animal. He is very tough, but that is his existence. He can even make friends with the few humans that he may come in contact with during his life. I learned to love these animals by reading this book which goes with the PBS program. I would recommend it to a parent who might like to read it to their child to show them what it is like out in the wild and what a wonderful creature the wolverine is.

    Thanks to Doug, I am awestruck by wolverines

    This is a delightful book, full of information on wolverines as well as Glacier National Park. Beautiful photographs! Doug Chadwick is knowledgeable, witty, and has great storytelling ability. Thank you to the dedicated individuals who studied Gulo gulo and thanks to Mother Nature for creating the remarkable, amazing(!) gulos we meet: I am in awe of both these humans and gulos. Please read this wonderful, well written book.

    Fascinating study of possibly the most amazing animal on earth

    I was fortunate enough to actually see not one but two wolverines in the wild this past autumn. Imagine my excitement when I spotted signed copies of this book at my local bookseller a scant two weeks after my siting. Until I read this book I had no idea how extremely rare these animals actually are although I'd never seen one in 50 years backpacking around the Pacific Northwest and the Rocky Mountain North. The descriptions of the animal in the book as a life support system for a set of legs and feet seems appropos given the distance they travel in pursuit of food in an extremely harsh environment. I was surprised also to learn that they are not on the endangered species list and that a determination is to be made at the end of 2010 to do just that. A blurb on the back of the book states that "Doug Chadwick is actually a wolverine but he writes like an angel." I second that opinion. This is a must read!
