Description - The Wolves of Isle Royale by Rolf Olin Peterson
Isle Royale National Park - with its lush northern landscape, wolves, and moose - is an ideal laboratory for wildlife biologists. For nearly half a century it has been the site of a comprehensive study on wolves (2008 marks the fiftieth anniversary) - the world's longest-running study on any wild animal. ""The Wolves of Isle Royale"" is author and wildlife biologist Rolf Peterson's fascinating first-hand account of the relationship that exists between the wolf and the moose on the island. Illustrated with over 100 photographs, this book reveals the true nature of this mysterious and little-understood animal, and it offers novel solutions to the conservation crises as the wolf population falters to its lowest recorded level.
