Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For animal lovers, nature lovers, environmentalists, and especially dog lovers, this book shares the new understanding gained by six years of the authors' living intimately with wild wolves. Created to complement a traveling exhibition that makes its debut at Chicago's Field Museum in March 2013, it will also appeal to those unable to see the show.

Jim and Jamie Dutcher, award-winning natural history filmmakers, adopted and raised three generations of gray wolves, living close to them in a 26-acre confined area in the Idaho wilderness. The lessons they learned from the Sawtooth Pack, as the wolves came to be called, inform this book and its passionate arguments advocating not only the reintroduction but the protection, respect, and even admiration for this much maligned animal whose descendants are the dogs we call our best friends. Remarkable, intimate photographs and stories share the Dutchers' vision and mission.

About the Author

JIM DUTCHER is an Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and cinematographer whose extraordinary camerawork has led audiences into places never before filmed: inside beaver lodges, down burrows to peek at wolf pups, and into the secret life of a mother mountain lion. His work includes the National Geographic special, A Rocky Mountain Beaver Pond, and ABC World of Discovery's two highest-rated films, Cougar: Ghost of the Rockies, and Wolf: Return of a Legend. JAMIE DUTCHER, Jim's wife and co-producer, has worked in the animal hospital of the National Zoo in Washington, D.C., bringing her knowledge of animal husbandry and medical care to film and enabling her to quickly gain access to the sensitive and secret inner lives of wolves. The author lives in Idaho.

Though I have not read the book in full, I have followed their lives with these wolves, over the years. This couple is exemplary in the field of wholehearted and passionate wolf conservation. I tip my hat to them and to be sure, will be soon purchasing my own copy of this book which will be held in high esteem, along side of a copy of an almost 75 year old wildlife book I treasured as a small child.

Jim and Jamie Dutcher are not experts on wolves. It's only the references from the real experts that give them the insight to write this book. Their treatment of the Sawtooth pack was dubious at best. They filmed a wolf pup from the Sawtooth pack separately, and when they were done with that project they just walked away leaving this animal with no place to go. Passing off the responsibility of that wolfs future in the hands of others with the possibility of euthanizing it. Fortunately these folks were able to care for this animal and give it a good home. This is a true recorded occurrence and not just rumor. Ask why the Sawtooth pack was taken in by the Nez Perce? They developed an entire program for these wolves and were put on the reservation. This is just a few examples of his egocentric determination to be an accredited film maker and not an animal activist as he portrays. I have no respect for him or his bogus concern for animals. If more people knew what he does behind the scenes to accomplish his goals they would never have anything to do with any of his work.
