From The Critics
"Succinctly presents a great deal of information on these beautiful animals."
Send report writers to Dorothy Hinshaw Patent's Gray Wolf, Red Wolf. The photograph-illustrated and indexed volume addresses the physical characteristics, social behavior and precarious status of North American wolves. Dr. Patent devotes more than half of her book to research and recovery projects, including the so-far successful reintroduction of the red wolf to North and South Carolina and the wolf-protection program in Minnesota.
