In Praise of Wolves distills the knowledge gained during thirty years of observation by a skilled and sensitive field naturalist who dedicated himself to the study and understanding of wolves. Though anecdotal and personal, its information on wolf behaviour is scientifically sound and its insights often startle. Lawrence argues, telling that wolves provide a much closer model of human behaviour than do primates, and he demonstrates what they can teach us about ourselves. Rich in fascinating detail, full of challenging speculation, In Praise of Wolves demolishes old myths and makes for absorbing reading.
