Jim Brandenburg has lived with wolves. They surround his home in Minnesota where he has observed the same wolf families for years in and out of the seasons.
He's watched them hunt and play, forage for food, and raise cubs. And he's photographed white Arctic wolves in a pack that was so remote, it had not yet developed a fear of people.
He shares his gripping experiences and moving encounters along with fascinating information about the life of a wolf, from hunting habits to how they raise their young. And he makes a persuasive case for protecting the threatened wolf and shows how humans and wolves can live together safely and in harmony.
Jim Brandenburg's wolf photographs are some of the best in the world.
From frolicking cubs to lone wolves by moonlight to Arctic wolves leaping on ice floes, Jim has recorded the beautiful and mysterious world of the wolf.
In "Face to Face With Wolves", he shares the intimacy of his own wolf encounters inspiring readers to want to learn more about this intriguing North American mammal. As with each "Face to Face" book, helpful and accessible back matter, especially designed for report writers, includes a facts-at-a-glance section, a conservation feature, a science inquiry exercise, a glossary, an index, and how to find out more.
