Long considered an icon of the wild, wolves capture our imagination and spark controversy. Humans are the adult wolf’s only true natural predator; its return to the old-growth forests and wild coastlines of the Pacific Northwest renews age-old questions about the value of wildlands and wildlife. As the vivid stories unfold in this riveting and timely book, wolves emerge as smart, complex players uniquely adapted to the vast interdependent ecosystem of this stunning region. Observing them at close range, David Moskowitz explores how they live, hunt, and communicate, tracing their biology and ecology through firsthand encounters in the wildlands of the Northwest. In the process he challenges assumptions about their role and the impact of even well-meaning human interventions.

Wolves in the Land of Salmon by David Moskowitz Let me start out by saying wolves are my favorite animal. In addition, the Pacific Northwest is one of my favorite places. Needless to say this book was a good fit for me. That being said, I know a lot about both topics. Despite that I learned a lot of new facts. David Moskowitz did a wonderful job with this book. It is very well written and packed with a wealth of Information. The photography is beautiful and graphically the layout was well done. I read the digital version of this book but it would make an excellent coffee table book. I highly recommend this book for anyone with a love for wolves and the Pacific Northwest.
