Brother Wolf: A Forgotten Promise starts off with an emotional "letter" from wolves to men, focusing on how humans and wolves used to live together in harmony, and how men are now killers, of wolves and other creatures. The letter ends with 'I do not think I know you anymore.' It is highly emotional, and nearly made me cry!

After that, the book switches to its true form...a book with captivating text and even better photos of wolves, taken ina areas where they are very elusive and have lots of foliage to be hidden among.

Jim Brandenburg, a very well-known wildlife photographer and the author of multiple wolf books, even goes far enough to explain his first encounter with wolves and how he felt at that time. The book is highly educational, but also very touching.

Overall, the book has great text with even greater photographs, and is definitely a good read. The high price, however, is quite a problem. But if you like wolves, and if you're willing to pay the price, definitely buy this book. It's excellent.

This book was extremely engaging and beautiful. The writing and pictures bring a whole new world beautifully. This book was designed so well, that it was very hard to put the book down when reading! It brought a whole new perspective to my view on my Siberian Husky, and no doubt a new relationship! This is a must read for all those wondering about the Wolf, and a definite with those who have dogs as companions!

Jim Brandenburg starts off his book "Brother Wolf: A Forgotten Promise" with a heart rending letter from one who has evolved right next to us, The Wolf. He describes (anthropomorphically) the way in which the wolf must view us. Strange and getting stranger, the wolf doesn't feel that he knows us any longer. After that Brandenburg becomes serious presenting the wolf not as the Devil of mythology, nor as the Angel of the new animal loving mythology. Instead he chooses to present the wolf as it is, a highly specialised predator filling its' important niche in our ecosystem. The text is easily understood by all. Complex behavioral jargon is avoided as this book was meant obviously to give the general public an idea of some of the facts surrounding this animal.

The photography is of course a beautiful example of why Brandenburgs photos are so popularly appealing. He shoots just as he writes, exactly what the animals are. His pictures communicate a depth of understanding that only someone who truly knows the wolf can achieve. If you wish to begin your own store of knowledge on the wolf "Brother Wolf" is an excellent place to start.

In Brother Wolf: A forgotten Promise, the author, Jim Brandenburg, becomes a bit more philosophical and introspective than in his earlier book, White Wolf, ( also a great book ). The study and photography for this book was done in the Boundary Waters area of Minnesota near Ely.Having been in Ely two years ago myself )and knowing nothing of Brandenburg), I happened to visit a wolf visitor center. This sparked my interest in wolves and when I came across the Brandenburgs books, I ordered them both. I ordered used books from Amazon and they are in perfect condition. In"Brother Wolf", the author describes the wolves of the boundary waters area where he lives in a cabin part of the year. If you have any fears or heard the usual old wives tales of the evilness of wolves,etc. this book will dispel those fears. It is finally time to take a realistic look at an animal who has been demonized for many years.
Brandenburgs writing is excellent and very enjoyable to read. His photos are beautiful. I highly recommend Brother Wolf: A Forgotten Promise and his earlier book White Wolf.

This is the most beautiful wolf book I own. The book reads poeticly, and will make you seriously fall in love with this animal. You will see through the wolf's eyes. This is one of few books were the author photographed all wild wolves, and never "lived" with the pack to do it.
