The Wolves of Isle Royale: A Broken Balanceby Rolf Olin Peterson, L. David Mech (Foreword by)
Isolated by the chill waters of Lake Superior, Isle Royale National Park with its wilderness ecosystem is an ideal living laboratory for wildlife biologists. For the public, it is also a place of the mind and imagination, shrouded in mystique about the wild wolves and their primary prey, the moose, that dwell there. For 35 years, this pristine island has been the site of the longest running study on the planet of any wild mammal. And author/wildlife biologist Rolf Peterson has the longest association (25 years) with that unique study.
-- The Wolves of Isle Royale is his compelling account of the Isle Royale wolves and moose dynamic. Illustrated with the author's dramatic photographs (including wolves hunting and bringing down moose and wolf attacks on other wolves), the vivid, sometimes violent, images complement the insightful and often eloquent text.
