I've been asked to recommend books for learning about wolves. I've gathered a list of 15 you should consider and listed them on my blog in order of date of publication. All are available on Amazon and should be in stock or available for order through your favorite independent book store.
I'd love to read comments from you about these books or ones that you like and that I did not list.
Have a fun and educational summer!
