I'm sorry I bought this book. Over half the book is taken up with history and physiology of the animals. If you want to learn wolf anatomy this book may be of some help.

The remaining part of this book has one practical project. But, it starts off assuming you have a roughout of a wolf then proceeds to show you how to fill in details in a very uninformative way, in my opinion.

Guess I'm not a very good shopper.

I found this book very worthwhile. It is not a book for beginners, but it is an excellent guide for anyone who wants to make his carvings of wolves, foxes and coyotes realistic. There is only one project shown in its entirety, but this one project shows many details and techniques for making your carving true-to-life. These techniques can then be used for completing other canines whose patterns are included at the end of the book. The author has shared her abundant knowledge of the slight differences in the anatomy of each species shown, so that carvings will be realistic even to experts viewing the animals. Two pages I especially like are the list of Carving and Painting Do's and Dont's, and the Common Woodburning Mistakes. These pages show common mistakes and simple ways to correct them.

There are a lot of diagrams in this book along with patterns. Many nice pictures. I was disappointed with the instruction portion of this book.
