    I have long been a fan of the Dutchers - their work stands as a testament to the amazing creatures we call wolves. And as this book makes clear - we humans have far more in common with wolves than we realize...or like to admit. Taking character traits that we value as humans, the Dutch...

    Love me a good animal book. The at times breathless writing holds this back a bit, but it?s still fun and informative. ...

    This was a quick and insightful description of an experiment around raising a wolf pack in captivity over several years. The wolves are fully acclimated to their keepers (the authors) and live in a 25 acre pen. Since the Dutchers live so intimately with the pack, the Dutchers see and r...

    ?Only by seeing wolves as they are, as neither demon or deity but as creatures worthy of our admiration will we find tolerance within our own human character.? If you are familiar and a fan of wolves, there are no revelations here. But there are affirmations and beautiful storie...

    Your reaction of this book will depend on what you are looking for. First, obviously you have to have an interest in wolves, which I do, and second if you are looking for a book about wolves in the wild, this one will not appeal. For me, it was exactly what I was looking for, a control...

    A recent favorite book, _Beyond Words_, included a bunch of wolf stories (along with their co-featured species elephants and orcas). It whetted my appetite for more. The team of Jim and Jamie Dutcher (he recording photos and videos, she audio) lived intimately with a pack of wolves for...

    My first non-fiction on wolves and I absolutely loved it. I've learned so much about the Sawtooth pack that after finishing this book, I felt like the pack was my own family. I love Lakota the omega so much. I guess I always have a special connection with bully victims. I teared toward...

    A Great Book that Makes the Most of a World that No Longer Holds a Place for Wolves Wolves are beautiful, right? They represent freedom, and look great while howling on a T-shirt, right? Of course they are, but unfortunately, we live in a world hostile to wolves. We get along wit...

    I had a difficult time deciding how to review this book. Parts of it were really good but I had a difficult time with the premise and that kept me from loving this book. In this review I will explain what I liked about the book and what problems I had and anyone who read the review can...

    There had been a debate raging in the US starting in the 1970s about reintroducing wolves into Yellowstone and other national parks. Historically, wolves have been one of the most vilified animals on the planet, a dangerous even evil predator. How often, for example, are mass murderers...

    It took me awhile to appreciate the work of Jim and Jody Dutcher. I did not understand the value of a setting where humans and wolves lived in close proximity. It seemed that their observations would be contaminated. What was not clear to me was that in living close to the wolves, they...

    Simply incredible. Find this review and an interview with the authors at Forever Lost in Literature! For six years, Jim and Jamie Dutcher lived on the perimeter of Idaho's Sawtooth Wilderness with a pack of wolves known as the Sawtooth pack in order to observe the movements, beh...

    An beautiful and easy way into learning about wolf biology and behavior from the Dutchers, who lived with wolves for 6 years and have worked tirelessly to protect the oft-misunderstood canids. ...

    This book serves as a witness to the complex emotional lives of wolves. Great stories told in very different but well written and visually descriptive voices. You will, more than once, shed a tear. Very educational and more importantly enjoyable. ...

    This was an interesting book on the lessons that one man and his wife learned from his time conducting a 6 year project where he analyzed Wolves and lived in their habitat. It was quite incredible to understand some of the human natures that Wolves have operating in packs and how their...

    Honestly, more a 4.5 or 4.75, but I save 5's for books I find extra special. This is a really wonderful book about a couple who set up a 25-acre temporary preserve in the Sawtooth Mountains and brought in wolves to study. Jim had already filmed and produced several successful films...

    I loved the glimpse into the social and emotional lives of wolves as well as the opportunity to ?meet? the individual wolves of the pack. This book affected me. It?s not a five-star book for me simply because I can?t resolve the question of whether the entire premise is ethi...

    Jim and Jamie Dutcher take us on an incredible journey which was very personal to both of them. This is a highly exceptional book which shares their personal experiences and their lives with the Sawtooth Pack. This book had me moved with emotion when they talked about their loss in one...

    The book was excellent and invoked a lot of emotion in me. However I wasn't a fan of how the story of the Sawtooth Pack did not move chronologically. I had a hard time keeping track of the story. ...

    Probably expected more fact and less feelings but it was the first book I read on the pack. I understand it was a book more on reflection. ...

    I read this book in a couple of days. It was inspiring. It was moving. It made me tear up a couple of time. We can learn a lot from wolves. This book will make you appreciate your own pack a little more. It will remind you why we work hard to protect the natural world from the destroye...

    The Wisdom of Wolves by Jim & Jamie Dutcher is a short but worthwhile read. The pair share lessons they learned from a wolf pack they actually lived with for six years. It?s full of interesting facts and stories of the wolves, but more so full of meaningful lessons like taking ca...

    Well, I'm not sure how to rate this. I live in North Idaho and like alot of people, I love wolves. I thought it'd be a pretty interesting read since it's pretty close to where I live, but I have mixed feelings about this book. First of all this is not a book about wild wolves. It is a ...

    This book brought tears to my eyes. It seems that wolves have suffered for decades under man's control. There were good times and bad times recorded in these pages, but it does bring to light how important wolves are to the environment and to man himself. Wolves are not only social cre...
