About this title

Synopsis:

An anthology in celebration of wolves includes writings by wolf experts, along with poetry, fables, legends, and myths from cultures around the world.

Review:

Wolves, extinct in many regions and necessarily furtive, are a rare sight in the wild. Anyone curious about the elusive Canis lupus might do well to start their search from an armchair, with this wide-ranging coffee table book as their guide. Originally published by the Nature Company in 1993, this reissued "celebration" is in fact an enormous collage of stories, legends, poetry, paintings, and photos relating to this largest member of the canine family. Short chapters such as "On the Hunt," "Wolves at Play," and "The Wolf Way of Birth," offer insight into the lives of wolves, with excerpts from the work of notable writers such as Farley Mowat, Lois Crisler, Barry Lopez and Edward Hoagland. The book also features a remarkable collection of photographs, including work by Jim Brandenburg--one of the world's foremost wolf photographers, and a first look at Mattias Klum's photos of wolves in his native Sweden.

Emphasizing the breadth rather than depth of wolf studies, Wolf provides a wide-ranging, accessible look at this most admired, and vilified, of carnivores. --Maria Dolan
