Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I've tracked them, fought them in a film (Jeremiah Johnson), and narrated a Natural History Museum recording of their language. I know this much. They are much misunderstood, but they are smart, cunning and important to the overall balance of our threatened ecosystem. They are more than worth preserving. This book provides an excellent chart to understanding this very special animal." —Robert Redford "WOLF EMPIRE is a magnificent portrait of one of nature's most majestic creatures, the wild wolf. Here we see their cunning, playfulness, beauty and killer instincts in an unforgettable album that gives us unique insights into their character and place in our lives." —Tom Brokaw "Mr. Barry has caught the intelligence and beauty of these magnificent creatures and helps us understand the American wolf a little better." —Ted Turner "Having spent nearly two decades working to restore these magnificent creatures to the hunting grounds of their ancestors in the wilds of the American West, I welcome Scott Ian Barry's rare and eloquent glimpse into the lives of wolves. As we become more intimate with these beings, we gain a better understanding of our own role in the circle of life." —Rob Edward, director, Carnivore Restoration Program, Sinapu (www.Sinapu.org) "Award-winning photographer Scott Ian Barry's deep personal connection with wolves is on full display in his gorgeous book." —Audubon

Read an Excerpt

"Wolf packs are families in every sense of the word, as much as the human family—except with several major differences: wolves don't get divorced; they don't abuse or abandon their children; and they don't go on TV talk shows, spilling their guts about their failed relationships to other wolves. Now which do you think is the more intelligent species?"

Wolf Empire is the first book ever to photograph wolves in black and white classic style in the tradition of Ansel Adams. They are shown as the dignified and beautiful individuals that they are - ever amazing and ever deserving of man's respect and appreciation. Their 'Empire' is one we need to share with our own.
