Man has unfairly demonized wolves for centuries. More than two million have been exterminated by humans due to misconceptions about the wolf being a destructive, ruthless, random predator. The Dutchers eloquently dispel these myths.
The authors' photographs and experiences living among a pack of wolves brings readers face-to-face with them to reveal an intelligent, social, family-oriented animal deserving of respect, admiration, and protection. Living with Wolves celebrates the wolves' fascinating lives--what makes a wolf howl, travel in packs, and relegate one member to the lowly "omega" position? How are they different from the family dog?
The Dutchers call for preserving wild places with contiguous wildlife corridors that allow for a sustainable ecosystem for wolves, and one that would preclude the clashes with ranchers and encroaching civilization that are threatening the wolf with rapid extinction.
