Wolves are much more than big, bad animals that prey on other animals. Did you know that wolves
Award-winning science writer Seymour Simon has teamed up with the Smithsonian Institution to give you the real story about this mythical and legendary animal in an updated edition of his classic full-color photographic introduction.
The riveting cover portraits on Seymour Simon's Wolves guarantees that it will not sit on the shelf. The equally compelling content will keep it a long time on the lap. Mr. Simon's photoessay, one of his best, alternates full-page pictures with narrative on the unjustifiably-maligned wolf's physical and social characteristics, its hunting strategies and pup rearing practices. Pair it with Mr. London's The Eyes of Gray Wolf, a sparely worded tale that traces the winter night's progress of a solitary male as it roams the frozen north's forests and ridges in search of food and a mate.
