"The Wolf Almanac is a splendid reference guide--as handy as it is scholarly and comprehensive." --Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, author of The Hidden Life of Dogs
 
"This book, especially the subject of reintroduction, ought to be required reading for all those concerned with wildlife conservation." --American Zoological Association Communiqué

This book is wonderful. I own both this revised copy and the previous one. Not much has changed between them. There is some updated information and brand new photos. This is an excellent book. I really enjoyed this book. It is chock-a-block full of useful information and some fun facts as well. Good as a referance book as well.

as an avid wolf lover, i found this book insightful. It gave me new insight and questions as to wolf behavior and communication. The pictures were beautiful and I fell in love the black wolf's eyes.

This book is really informative and beautiful. I could not have found a more detailed and beautifully photographed book on Wolves, and it is exactly what I was looking for. The hardcover book makes it a delight, a collector's item, and it would be a waste to use it merely as a coffee table book. It is simple to read, and nicely laid out, very professionally done. It gives such an intimate look into the lives of wolves, and is suitable for both amateurs and hardcore wolf-lovers.

Format: Paperback
I give this book a four star because it is only a good introduction to the study of wolves and their world. The facts presented are listed as if in a thesis paper, so it is not considered well written, and it did not tell me much I did not already know, even though I've never formally read any other books on Wolves. The illustrations are good and it is a good pointer for resources to look into if you are interested in pursuing studies in this awesome animal.

This book is beautiful. It has been useful and every page is breath taking.

Without marking down for this, I think the only thing I was wanting was almost a science text book that explains more about the animals on a biology level. This book is a huge introduction into wolves - don't expect much more. This book works well at keeping my attention. I have learned a few things from this book.

You will learn a lot and I am proud to say I have added this to my collection of Wolf books.

This was a gift for a pre-teen girl who is crazy about wolves. She likes it a lot, and I even enjoyed looking through it.
