Wolves are some of the world's most charismatic and controversial animals, capturing the imaginations of their friends and foes alike. Highly intelligent and adaptable, they hunt and play together in close-knit packs, sometimes roaming over hundreds of square miles in search of food. Once teetering on the brink of extinction across much of the United States and Europe, wolves have made a tremendous comeback in recent years, thanks to legal protection, changing human attitudes, and efforts to reintroduce them to suitable habitats in North America. As wolf populations have rebounded, scientific studies of them have also flourished. But there hasn't been a systematic, comprehensive overview of wolf biology since 1970. In Wolves, many of the world's leading wolf experts provide state-of-the-art coverage of just about everything you could want to know about these fascinating creatures. Individual chapters cover wolf social ecology, behavior, communication, feeding habits and hunting techniques, population dynamics, physiology and pathology, molecular genetics, evolution and taxonomy, interactions with nonhuman animals such as bears and coyotes, reintroduction, interactions with humans, and conservation and recovery efforts. The book discusses both gray and red wolves in detail and includes information about wolves around the world, from the United States and Canada to Italy, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Israel, India, and Mongolia. Wolves is also extensively illustrated with black and white photos, line drawings, maps, and fifty color plates. Unrivalled in scope and comprehensiveness, Wolves will become the definitive resource on these extraordinary animals for scientists and amateurs alike. “An excellent compilation of current knowledge, with contributions from all the main players in wolf research. . . . It is designed for a wide readership, and certainly the language and style will appeal to both scientists and lucophiles alike. . . . This is an excellent summary of current knowledge and will remain the standard reference work for a long time to come.”—Stephen Harris, New Scientist “This is the place to find almost any fact you want about wolves.”—Stephen Mills, BBC Wildlife Magazine

A rare divine intervention occurs that enables the spirits of wolves that were killed 100 years ago to manifest themselves in a wooden structure that was made by a sheepherder, the man responsible for their deaths back in the early 1900's. This wooden structure is amongst the items belonging to this sheepherder that were kept in his shed after he'd been dead for many years. The property is being sold so the contents of what is left in this shed after being vandalized, is sorted and the trash is hauled off to the city dump. On the way there the stand is intercepted by the niece of this sheepherder who claims it only because it has sentimental value. She is unaware that the spirits of 31 wolves inhabit this stand that have cleverly choosen her as their medium at a time when their own species is endangerd by extinction despite the laws that were established to protect them. They are back 100 years into the future to assure their survival and proclaim their rights to live. They make themselves visible to her which totally consumes her every day life in order to make a stand. She seeks the guidance of a tribal medicine man, his image visible with the steam of her shower in her vanity mirror that leads her to him. The Spirit wolves are only here to save their species from extinction when the wolf population is down to only a few known survivors in the year 1998. She meets the man in the 'mirror' who is a tribal medicine man who knows all about her and her obligations to save the wolves. Together, they summon the spirit wolves and send them back to where they came. This story is sure to captivate audiences with it's abundance of human emotion and supernatural activity that sets off any imagination with the possibility of it's true existance in our world today and based on a true story. Their message is a warning to mankind, that time is of the essence. Our last chance to unite as one, working together to protect all wild creatures of the earth and the correlation between preserving their existance and saving our own planet from permanent destruction. The year is 2012, and time is of the essence. According to the calculations of the Mayan Calander, the end is near.
