Book Review - FACE TO FACE WITH WOLVES by Jim and Judy Brandenburg

About the Book
The Arctic wolf inches towards you. Like you, he is torn between fear and curiosity. His instinct leads him towards the scent of your leather boots. Your instinct is to reach out to this curious white canine, but he snarls, and you're face to face with a wild animal!

Come face to face with wolves through this book's photos by Jim Brandenburg. For years, he's photographed wolves leaping onto ice floes, hunting and foraging for food and surrounding his house in Minnesota.

In the "Face to Face With Animals" series, National Geographic experts take you into the wild! Go behind the scenes with the people who research and photograph wild animals.

Each book includes "Tips from the experts", a "facts at a glance" reference section, a scientific experiment, a glossary, and a "find out more" section all stimulate participation.

My Take on the Book
This photographic journal begins with Jim telling us that wolves are his favorite animal. He traveled to the high Arctic, far north in Canada where white wolves live so he could study them. After three summers of study, he returned to Minnesota where he and his wife continued their study of wolves.

The second section of this book gives us information about wolves. There are many details and excellent photographs and along the margins there are "fun" facts about wolves.

Jim explains how wolves were hunted so much that there was decline in numbers to the point that they were place on the Endangered Species list. He shows the reader how that recovery for these animals is taking place now.

The last section of the book has pages of additional information about wolves, but also has information on how the reader can assist in reestablishing the wolf population in the United States.

The photographs are amazing and the information keeps you engaged in this beautiful book. It is worth sharing . Enjoy!

If this book is one that you would like for your own library you can find it on Amazon!
