About this book

During 1939 and 1941, Murie, one of North America's great naturalists, made a field study of the relationship between wolves and Dall sheep in Mount McKinley National Park which has come to be respected as a classic work of natural history. The Wolves of Mount McKinley not only describes the life cycle of Alaskan wolves in greater detail than has ever been done, but also relates a great deal about the entire ecological network of predator and prey.

"Murie's work is still one of the most frequently cited references on wolf biology today."
