“Wolves are some of the world’s most charismatic and controversial animals, capturing the imagination of their friends and foes alike.  Highly intelligent and adaptable, they hunt and play together in close knit packs, sometimes roaming over a hundreds of square miles in search of food.  Once teetering on the brink of extinction across much of the United States Europe, wolves have made a tremendous comeback in recent years, thanks to legal protection, changing human attitudes, and efforts to reintroduce them to suitable habitats in North America.    Unrivaled in scope and comprehensiveness, Wolves will become the definitive resource on these extraordinary animals for scientists and amateurs alike.”
