In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in wolves and a corresponding change in public sentiment regarding them. Once feared as a dangerous predator who kills for the joy of killing, the wolf is now respected as a highly intelligent animal whose culture closely resembles that of humans. Both of these books aim to foster a new understanding of wolves by dispelling the negative myths and widespread misunderstanding that have given them an undeservedly bad reputation. In The Sawtooth Wolves, wildlife cinematographer Dutcher uses outstanding photography to convey his message. In a unique project, Dutcher and his crew lived in a wolf colony in Idaho for six years?an arrangement that allowed photographers and scientists to observe wolves engaged in their daily lives, something rarely seen by humans. Although the wolves in this project were not tame, they were comfortable with their human companions and interacted with them, resulting in this unique look at the species. Wildlife biologist Hampton's The Great American Wolf is a scholarly history, tracing humankind's 400-year interaction with wolves in North America from their near extinction to their reintroduction into Yellowstone. The social structure of a wolf pack bears a striking resemblance to human society, and Hampton introduces his readers to well-known wolves with unique personalities. These two titles complement each other well and would appeal to wolf enthusiasts and those interested in animal behavior. Both are recommended.?Deborah Emerson, Monroe Community Coll.

This coffee table exploration of a wolf pack native to the Idaho mountains presents an unusual approach: each pack member was raised from infancy by photographer Dutcher and his crew so they would be comfortable around humans and eminently photographic. The wolves may be comfortable but they haven't been tamed: this allows the authors to provide unusual photos of wolves 'in the wild' with unique, close-up shots unavailable elsewhere. -- Midwest Book Review
