In this intimate look at wolves in the wild, Candace Savage combines an authoritative text with stunning full-colour photographs by the world's best wildlife photographers. The book begins by exploring the intense and ancient bond between people and wolves. Few species have been held in such contempt by humankind or persecuted with more devastating efficiency, yet wolves also have a special ability to kindle human sympathies, reminding us of our essential connection to wild places and wiled lives.

Drawing on the most recent research, The Nature of Wolvesexamines wolf society in all it complexity, focussing on pack structure, sex roles and communication. It also looks at wolves as hunters and at the sensitive dynamics of predatory-prey relationships. Finally the book describes current conservation strategies.

Throughout the superb photographs capture the spirit of the wolf as it raises its voice in a cool, lingering howl, lopes across a snow blanketed field or leaps through the air in a dramatic attack on its prey. Together, text and photographs celebrate our long-standing fascination with wolves and the inspiration we can draw from these magnificent animals.
