Long considered an icon of the wild, wolves capture our imagination and spark controversy. Humans are the adult wolf's only true natural predat∨ its return to the old-growth forests and wild coastlines of the Pacific Northwest renews age-old questions about the value of wildlands and wildlife.

As the vivid stories unfold in this riveting and timely book, wolves emerge as smart, complex players uniquely adapted to the vast interdependent ecosystem of this stunning region. Observing them at close range, David Moskowitz explores how they live, hunt, and communicate, tracing their biology and ecology through firsthand encounters in the wildlands of the Northwest. In the process he challenges assumptions about their role and the impact of even well-meaning human interventions.

Moskowitz covers a lot in this book - not just a natural history of the wolf but the history of our interactions with the wolf, current arguments over the reintroduction of the wolf, and the consequences of the absence of wolves to ecosystems. Plus great photos.
