About this book

The Wolf Almanac has become an acknowledged reference work for the evolution and history of wolves; their biology and physiology, behaviour and sociology; and their influence in ancient culture and mythology. This newly revised edition of The Wolf Almanac contains the most recent information on reintroduced wolves, as well as fully updated information on the status of wolves throughout the world.

"The Wolf Almanac is a splendid reference guide – as handy as it is scholarly and comprehensive."
– Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, author of The Hidden Life of Dogs

"This book, especially the subject of reintroduction, ought to be required reading for all those concerned with wildlife conservation."
– American Zoological Association Communique

"The worldwide decline of the wolf parallels the decline of our humanity. The fate of the wolf will be the fate of civilization. The Wolf Almanac is an inspiration to us all to help save the wolf, and by doing so, save the spirit of civilization and humanity."
– Dr. Michael W. Fox, author of The Soul of the Wolf

"No other wolf resource offers this level of detail. Evolution, distribution, anatomy, physiology are illuminated."
