Description

Once feared throughout North America, wolves have been poisoned, brutally trapped, and strafed from airplanes. Environmentalists have achieved a hard-won and highly publicized reassessment of this eradication policy, and reintroduction programs are now in place at a number of public land sites. As wolves flourish under protected status, however, bitter conflicts have erupted throughout the western states between their defenders and the ranchers whose livestock fall prey to their growing populations.

Wolf Songs is a highly partisan introduction to this magnificent animal. Here are essays from eighteen of the most noted nature writers of the past half-century, including pioneer conservationists (Aldo Leopold, Ernest Thompson Seton), popular authors (Farley Mowat, R. D. Lawrence), famed essayists (Barry Lopez, Rick Bass), and America's top wolf expert, David Mech.

From a charming description of two wolf cubs learning to hunt, to a stirring essay on the tragic consequences of raising wolves, this intriguing collection makes a passionate and persuasive plea for greater understanding of North America's most maligned, but perhaps most majestic, predator.
