About this book

Wolves. We love them, idolize them, and are fascinated by them. We also hate them, fear them, and blame them. The wolf's relationship with humans is complex and can be emotionally wrought, depending on whether one is a hunter, rancher, or animal lover.

Wolves in the Land of Salmon is nature writing at its best. Vivid imagery and a sense of wonder bring the text alive and help the reader understand exactly what it means to be a wolf. David Moskowitz's training as a wildlife tracker gives him insider knowledge he generously shares with the hope that with greater understanding comes new perspective.

The daring photography provides the first significant portrait of these charismatic animals west of the Cascades and the British Columbia Coast Range. His accounts of young wolves at play, and the stories that shed light on the psychological power wolves have across cultures and generations, make this a true wilderness adventure.

"In this book, you feel the presence of wolves the same way people who knew the forests felt it in centuries past: through signs so subtle that most of us would miss them. As an expert tracker of wild animals, David Moskowitz enjoys a unique perspective, and here he shares it with us. He makes the rarely seen Northwestern wolf real in a way that no mere recounting of scientific findings could do."
– Daniel Mathews. author of Cascade–Olympic Natural History

"Dave Moskowitz has written a captivating, comprehensive. fair, and accurate portrait of one of the most magical yet most misunderstood species on the planet. I pray that this book gets the attention It deserves."
– Martha Handler, president of the board of the Wolf Conservation Center, New York
