The Last Wild Wolves
Ghosts of the Great Bear RainforestKit - 2007
An intimate portrait that documents for the first time ever a distinct population of wolves through firsthand observations, captivating photos, and rare video footage on DVD. For seventeen years, Ian McAllister has lived on the rugged north coast of British Columbia, one of the last places on the planet where wolves live relatively undisturbed by humans. This book describes his experiences over that period following two packs of wolves, one in the extreme outer coastal islands and another farther inland in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest. The behavior of these animals--which depend on the vast old-growth forest and its gifts--is documented in words and pictures as they fish for salmon in the fall, target seals hauled out on rocks in winter, and give birth to their young in the base of thousand-year-old cedar trees in spring. Most interestingly, scientific studies reveal a genetically distinct population of wolves--one that is increasingly threatened by human incursions. Also available in paperback.
