About this book

The Way of the Wolf is the latest in a series of intricately researched and beautifully illustrated journals of discovery and thought-provoking observation from the mother and daughter team Pollyanna and Anna-Louise Pickering. In common with their highly-acclaimed back catalogue of work, The Way of the Wolf tackles the perilous state of an endangered species struggling on the edge of existence, battling against loss of habitat, ignorance and disease.

In The Way of the Wolf Pollyanna and Anna-Louise will take you on two specific journeys, taken five years apart on different continents, to seek out the threatened European wolf in Romania and the critically endangered Ethiopian wolf that clings to a rapidly diminishing habitat in the high mountains of the Horn of Africa.

Anna-Louise writes with the straightforward, frequently humorous, observational style of the consummate diarist and her fascinating photographs provide documentary evidence of these meticulously planned expeditions. The beating heart of The Way of the Wolf are Pollyanna's intricate working sketches and stunning original paintings. Her passion for conserving endangered wildlife in its natural environment inhabits her work – the threatened wolves that face a daily struggle for survival in the highlands of Transylvania and Ethiopia could find no greater champion.
