Review by Publisher Summary 2

This stirring book of photographs introduces the many wolves that have been given sanctuary at Wolf Haven International near Mount Rainer in southeast Washington State. Annie Marie Musselman was given the rare opportunity to photograph the wolves at the Wolf Haven sanctuary. These captive-born and displaced wolves came from a variety of captive environments. Some of the highly endangered Mexican and red wolf pups will be raised with the possibility of future release into the wild. Human contact is very limited, so the images captured by Musselman express a wild spirit that is very different from anything seen in domesticated animals. Brenda Peterson’s text puts the stories of these wolves, and of wolves in North America, into context as she describes their behavior patterns and social structure. Wolf Haven uncovers new truths about wolves and the ways humans are finding to coexist with these wild animals.
