Following the Last Wild Wolves

McAllister, a conservation biologist who spent 20 years documenting the unique role wolves play in the temperate rainforest, explores the captivating, elusive lifestyle of coastal wolves in this book. Observing over 40 wolf packs, he reveals his team’s fascinating primary research about the least studied wolves in North America. McAllister’s personalized observations provide an intimate look into the daily life of rainforest wolves, wolves that are not found anywhere else in the world. These fascinating creatures can swim distances of up to 10 km, devour an unsuspecting black bear and maintain a mutually beneficial relationship with ravens. Drawing parallels between wolves and humans while including insights from a First Nations researcher, this is an eloquently written book.

McAllister is coauthor of The Great Bear Rainforest.
