Product description

Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I want more books at this level 12 January 2000
By Never Tuesday - Published on Amazon.com
I read this book from the library, but soon I will try to buy one for myself, because it is very special. I refer to it and forward what I remember from it onto various email lists all the time. The author includes substantial detail of the sort there is usually not enough of in wolf books, without overwhelming with boring or inaccurate statistics, or losing a good writing style. The author respects and loves the wolf FOR WHAT IT IS INHERENTLY. If you are studying dog or wolf behavior as a "serious layperson" this is a must have. The kind of detailed insight this book has is hard to find, one of the rare similar books is CALMING SIGNALS ... by Turid Rugaas(sp?), which is about dog body language (and therefore based on wolf pack language).

Lawrence focuses on two wolves that he raised from babyhood. He obviously loved wolves and did a lot of things to help them survive in a hostile world.
