Overview

This book introduces young readers to the gray wolf, a sacred animal in many cultures. Easy-to-read text examines the gray wolf's development as a cultural icon, from Native American totems through tales and legends of these beautiful creatures, to today's status as a symbol of the recovery of endangered populations. Readers will also learn about the gray wolf's body, its appearance, size, and coloring. Wolf reproduction is discussed, as is pup development and life cycle. Readers will discover what gray wolves like to eat and how they hunt. Also covered is the gray wolf's habitat, and a range map shows where in the world they live. Informative sidebars highlight additional information, including the gray wolf's scientific classification. Predators, including humans, are also discussed, as are past and present conservation efforts to preserve this special creature. Bolded glossary terms, phonetic spellings, and an index enhance readability for young iconologists. Checkerboard Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
