Reviews

"Boston Globe" Haunting....has something of value to say to all of us.
Bayard Webster "New Fork Times Book Review" Fascinating....His book has a wealth of observation, mythology and mysticism about wolves that adds a colorful part to the still unfinished mosaic that defines the wolf.
Edmund Fuller "Wall Street Journal" A splendid, beautiful book.
George Schaller "Animal Kingdom Of Wolves and Men" is not only the best popular account of an animal I have read in a long time, but also something new -- a bridge between books of the past and those of the future, which, it is hoped, will incorporate and expand the perceptions so eloquently treated here.
John Fowles A remarkable book, both biologically absorbing and humanly rich, and one that should be read by every ecologically concerned American.
Robert Kirsch "Los Angeles Times" Unusually informative and sensitive.
Walter Clemons "Newsweek" Eloquent....His own patient effort to understand a despised, feared and heavily mythologized beast induces a shiver, of strangeness, the sign of fresh, original work.
Whitley Streiber "Washington Post" Brilliant...a work of intelligence, dedication and beauty, deserving the widest possible attention not only for the sake of wolves but also for the sake of men.
