Not yet rated | write a review

Wolves, perceived for centuries as shadowy, halfdemonic beasts and cunning predators, were hunted mercilessly in an attempt to wipe out the species. Today, significant numbers remain only in a few wilderness areas of Europe, Asia and North America. The big bad wolf of our mythology has been replaced by the equally inaccurate image of the wolf as an animal that eats mice and is kind to its neighbours.

In this book, Candace Savage draws on folklore, history and biology to present a balanced picture of this most misunderstood of wild creatures. The outstanding collection of full-colour photographs which accompany her text capture the wildness and grace of these magnificent animals as they hunt, interact within the pack and care for their young. In recent years, the fate of the wolf has been much debated as governments and environ-mentalists disagree over how populations should be managed. Thought-provoking and visually stunning, this book both celebrates the wolf and challenges the reader to consider how humans and wolves can now best share the earth.
