Symbols of beauty and mystery, wolves have always evoked both fear and admiration in humans - their only enemy. Through countless generations, the wolf has simply wanted to be left alone, to hunt, play and raise its young. Yet over time, our attitude toward the wolf has changed dramatically. Early civilisations revered wolves as creators and helpers. In the Middle Ages, wolves became symbols of evil. In recent times wolves were nearly hunted to extinction. Today, the wolf is an icon of the wild, its howl a cry for preservation. It has been quite a journey - from creator to feared killer to spiritual guardian of the wild. Wolf: Legend, Enemy, Icon chronicles the facts and stories, and includes breathtaking photographs and fascinating artifacts.
