Read full description of the books:
This book is an absolute must for any Wolf-fan and is worth every penny of the price. Although it is easy to read, it stands out mostly for its spectacular images of a pack of Arctic wolves in the Arctic. To my knowledge this book is the first one with photographs of the truly wild wolves in such abundance. Many people do not know but most of the photos taken of wolves are from wild- or game parks (or whatever they are called) and therefore the photographed wolves often look very "smooth".
Not this book, we see photos of puppies to adults. It is not hidden or glossed over. Everything is shown: disheveled fur, dirty faces, bloody muzzles drawn fresh from a prey, the icy wind whistling around the ears of them, in short:
What you get to see are wolves how they are and not how you want them to be.

Read information about the authorLucyan David "Dave" Mech is an internationally recognized wolf expert, a senior research scientist for the U.S. Department of the Interior's U.S. Geological Survey (since 1970), and an adjunct professor at the University of Minnesota in St. Paul. He has researched wolves since 1958 in places such as Minnesota, Canada, Italy, Alaska, Yellowstone National Park, and on Isle Royale.
Mech is the founder of the International Wolf Center and sits on its Board of Directors as Vice Chair. The project to create the facility, which he started in 1985, was a natural outgrowth of his wolf research as well as his ambition to educate people about the nature of wolves that they may come to respect the creature through understanding.
He has published ten books and numerous articles about wolves and other wildlife, the most famous of these being his books The Wolf: The Ecology and Behavior of an Endangered Species and Wolves: Behavior, Ecology, and Conservation.
