Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Send report writers on to R. D. Lawrence's Wolves and Dorothy Hinshaw Patent's Gray Wolf, Red Wolf. Both photograph-illustrated and indexed volumes address the physical characteristics, social behavior and precarious status of North American wolves, but with different emphases. Mr. Lawrence concentrates on the predator's characteristics and provides full-page drawings that detail such specifics as wolf body language, skull structure, and life-size paw prints. Dr. Patent devotes more than half of her book to research and recovery projects, including the so-far successful reintroduction of the red wolf to North and South Carolina and the wolf-protection program in Minnesota.
Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
Wolves are often considered fearsome creatures, the legendary enemies of man. Werewolves haunting the cities, wolves haunting forests and farms-they are altogether to be avoided. But that's just the stories. Here is a beautiful tribute to real-life wolves. The Sierra Club, in its Wildlife Library, sees them as an important part of northern ecology. The red wolf is endangered; the gray is more common. In the introduction, a human is afraid that a pack is going to attack him, and considers his "escape" to be a tremendous bit of luck. But he later finds that he has gotten between the wolves and their kill. They were just trying to scare him away. They succeeded, too, as they usually do. This is a glorious book. The photographs are absolutely wonderful. Highly recommended for all ages.
