Wolves are more than what they seem.

For centuries people have been afraid of wolves, yet these animals tend to be shy and live peacefully among themselves. Here is information on gray wolves (also called timber wolves) who live in packs that hunt in territories as large as 500 square miles. Pack leaders mate for life, and pack member hunt together, share food, and protect each other. There is also information about the red wolf, and how all wolves are in danger of extinction and need to be protected. Included are four myths and legends, and a list of curious facts.

Praise For…


"One might ask whether there is room for yet another book about wolves. Emphatically, yes—if it isby Gibbons...Lively color illustrations, a mixture of watercolors, pen-and-ink, and colored chalk, follow the wolves on their northern trails throughout the year. This excellent resource for primary-grade students has additional wolf facts, myths, and legends appended."—Booklist

"With her usual flare, Gibbons presents information in a straightforward, no-nonsense manner...Don't miss this one. IT's great for young report writers."—Book Links
