Book Review: Last of the Wild Wolves
So begins The Last Wild Wolves: Ghosts of the Rain Forest, an exhilarating journey to one of the planet’s most spectacular regions–Canada’s North Pacific coast, our largest intact temperate Rain Forest and one of the last places where wolves live wild and undisturbed.
Award-winning writer and wildlife photographer Ian McAllister draws from his intimate observations of more than forty wolf packs along this rugged coastline over a seventeen-year period in this first-ever documentation of their fascinating, complex way of life.
In a compelling narrative and more than 100 stunning photographs, McAllister captures these majestic animals fishing for salmon, stalking seals hauled out on rocks, playing on the beach,and raising their families.
Enough can not be said about how splendid and wild this book is! The photography alone is stunning, but the stories told by the author of encounters with wolves and grizzly bears along the Pacific coast of British Columbia will make your spine tingle. It’s a book every wolf enthusiast should own.
