Overview

Ninety-seven color images by outstanding wildlife photographers and a thoroughly researched, illuminating text explore the history, life cycle, and true nature of wolves worldwide.

Author Candace Savage traces the global history of wolves and then focuses specifically on the North American wolf, exploring the mythology and negative stereotypes of wolves, as well as equally erroneous "Disneyfied" images. Describing their true behaviors, she tells us why wolves have become symbols of vitality and wilderness and alerts us to the perils they face in North America.

The extraordinary gallery of images - by such outstanding North American wildlife photographers as Art Wolfe, Jim Brandenburg, Peter J. McLeod, Rolf O. Peterson, Erwin and Peggy Bauer, and Karen Hollet - includes dramatic shots of wolves hunting musk oxen and deer, interacting within the hierarchy of the pack, and rearing their young.

With extraordinary photographs and an authoritative text, Wolves captures the wildness and grace of these magnificent creatures.
