We have hated the wolf. We have admired the wolf. Some of us have even loved the wolf. But few of us have known the wolf’s story.
With a powerful narrative and 140 remarkable photographs, Jim Brandenburg’s Brother Wolf tells that story. Here are the ancient days of human history, when wolves and humans were partners in the struggle to survive. Here is the story of how we came to adopt the wolf, in the form of the dog, as our cherished daily companion. Here is the story of wolf hatred and persecution, triggered by vicious and unfounded myths. Here is the story of the wolf as it lives today, a highly intelligent predator who continues to howl, hunt and breed despite humanity’s efforts to eradicate it. And most importantly, here is compelling evidence that wolves and humans share a special kinship – and that the wolf’s future is our future.
Brother Wolf is deeply personal, yet global in its implications. It’s a book that will revolutionize our thinking about wolves, human nature, our primeval past and the survival of our planet.
