Wolves is an outstanding collection of photographs showing these intriguing animals in their natural habitat. It is divided into chapters on the lone wolf, wolves in winter, hunting, the wolf pack and wolf cubs. You'll discover how wolves are adapted for hunting and running. They have big lungs and a heart that is twice as big as another mammal of a similar length and weight. They scare off wolves from another pack by adopting a low, hunched posture with mouth open and teeth arrayed in a snarl. However, when they have a broad, flat head, it indicates they are in a playful mood.

It is an introduction to an animal that has fascinated, inspired and terrified people throughout history.
