The Sea Wolves: Living Wild in the Great Bear Rainforest

Ian McAllister and Nicholas Read, photos by Ian McAllister, Orca, $19.95 paper (96p) ISBN 978-1-55469-206-4
In a companion to The Salmon Bears, McAllister and Read set out to prove that "if you put aside all the bad press they've received in North American history, European fairy tales and Disney cartoons... you'll discover that wolves are fascinating," delivering a engaging account that focuses on the wolves that inhabit British Columbia's Great Bear Rainforest. Aug-mented by a bounty of sharp photos taken at close range (that say as much about this stunning section of the Pacific coast as they do about the wolves) and "Wolf Bites" sidebars about everything from the animals' social hierarchy to the differences between wolves and dogs, the authors provide a comprehensive study of these wolves while cautioning that, in contrast to their fierce image, they are quite vulnerable to environmental changes and human behavior. Ages 8–up. (Oct.)
