They have been feared, sentimentalized, and slaughtered, yet they somehow have managed to resist extinction. Now wolves are being reintroduced into Yellowstone National Park, reawakening passions as ancient as their tangled relationship with human beings. For wolves, says Peter Steinhart, are our secret sharers, fellow predators with a complex social organization, intense family ties, and an equal capacity for aggression and cooperation. Steinhart follows these elusive creatures into their natural habitats. He describes the complexities of predation and pack life. He talks to the men and women who have devoted their lives to protecting or eradicating them. The result is an authoritative and eloquent book that is not only the last word on wolves but a journey back to the wild origins of human nature. &lAn exhaustive chronicle...comprehensive, rich in historic detail and scientific heft...`The Company of Wolves' is an education and often a journey.' - Boston Globe
