About this book

Covers the five large carnivores of the Scandinavian North - the Wolf, the Bear, the Lynx, the Wolverine - and Man. Photographers and writers Staffan Widstrand and Magnus Elander have worked for four years together with journalist Johan Lewenhaupt, to create this stunning book. The 13 essays display a number different angles and ways of looking at the carnivores - and ourselves. In unique and intimate images we meet the European wolf and European Brown Bear as almost never before. We get close to the shy Lynx and the unknown Wolverine steps out from the shadows. An underlying theme through the whole book is the relationship between Man and the other large carnivores. "A magnificent book of pictures and essays delivering both excitement and beauty - a read that will leave no one indifferent". The World Wildlife Fund
