Wolves Never Cry Wolf
by Farley Mowat

EYE TO EYE WITH DEATH: THE WOLF PROJECT Hordes of bloodthirsty wolves are slaughtering the arctic caribou, and the government's Wildlife Service assigns naturalist Farley Mowat to investigate. Mowat is dropped alone onto the frozen tundra, where he begins his mission to live among the howling wolf packs and study their ways. Contact with his quarry comes quickly, and Mowat discovers not a den of marauding killers but a courageous family of skillful providers and devoted protectors of their young. As Mowat comes closer to the wolf world, he comes to fear with them the onslaught of bounty hunters and government exterminators out to erase the noble wolf community from the Arctic. Never Cry Wolf is one of the brilliant narratives on the myth and magic of wild wolves and man's true place among the creatures of nature.

Artic Wolf To the Top of the World : Adventures With Arctic Wolves
by Jim Brandenburg, Joann Bren Guernsey

"A truly compelling chronicle of a wildlife photographer's experience living close to an Arctic wolf pack. Author-photographer Brandenburg, known for his work for National Geographic as well as other magazines, and twice named magazine photographer of the year by the National Press Photographer's Association, feels "adopted" by the pack living on remote Ellesmere Island, where the wolves have probably not had previous contact with humans and, therefore, are not afraid of them. Brandenburg comes to know the pack members and their special characteristics as well as the necessary hierarchy that defines each member's place in the pack. This suberb photo-essay will make it difficult to think of wolves in the same way again."
