About the Author

Gudrun Pflüger grew up in the small Austrian town of Radstadt. She is a former professional cross-country skier and elite marathon mountain runner who earned the Mountain Running World Trophy in 1993, 1995, 1996 and 1997. She is also a certified field biologist who has spent years studying, tracking and advocating for wild wolves. After retiring from athletics, she relocated to western Canada, where she became involved in the conservation of British Columbia’s coastal wolf population and also studied wild wolves in the Rocky Mountains of Alberta. Her research has been documented in the much lauded Smithsonian Channel films A Woman Among Wolves and Running With Wolves. To this day she continues to spend countless hours as an advocate for protecting wild wolf populations in her own country and abroad. Gudrun now lives near Salzburg, Austria, with her son, Conrad.
