For centuries, wolves have haunted the human imagination. It has been accepted as conventional wisdom that they are savage predators, creatures of nightmare. Determined to overcome such misconceptions, Jim and Jamie Dutcher spent six years in a tented camp on the edge of Idaho's wilderness, living with and filming a pack of wolves. Now, in this lyrical memoir, the Dutchers share their experience of life among these intelligent and elusive animals.
By socializing with the pack from the time they were pups, the Dutchers were able to gain the wolves' trust and observe their behavior in a way that few people ever have. What they witnessed was remarkable: a complex nature oriented toward family life and strong social bonds.
Wolves at Our Door is much more than a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the Dutchers' Emmy Award-winning Discovery Channel documentary. It is the story of two people brought together by their devotion to wildlife and held together by their belief in each other. It is about their struggle to keep the project alive amid marauding mountain lions, forest fires, subzero temperatures -- and the never-ending storm of controversy that surrounds the wolf.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Jamie Lee Curtis I am in awe of the dedication that Jim and Jamie Dutcher have put into their study of wolves, and I'm fascinated by the many sides of their rich story. It is a tale that is alternately beautiful and brutal, tragic and hopeful.
Peter Matthiessen author of The Snow Leopard A fascinating, candid, and well-written account of exciting and romantic years in the close company of these exceptionally intelligent and unfairly demonized animals.
