Children's Literature
Even though there has never been an incident involving a healthy, wild wolf killing a human in North America, many Americans continue to fear these predatory animals. This informative volume dispels some of the myths commonly associated with wolves and takes a close-up look at the fascinating world of these creatures. The author presents a "fast facts" section about wolves, which highlights common names, scientific names, average size and weight, habitats, prey, abilities and social habits, followed by four short chapters about the physical characteristics of wolves, the hunt, the kill and how wolves exist in a world of people. Packed with full-color photographs and interesting facts, this reference contains well-written text and sidebars, a range map, a glossary, a list of books for further reading, a list of useful addresses and Internet sites and an index. The conservation of wolves is very important and this book offers an honest, well-researched portrayal of these amazing carnivores. Young researchers will find this resource very helpful. Part of the "Predators in the Wild" series. 2001, Capstone Press, . Ages 7 to 11. Reviewer: Debra Briatico
