This book takes a fascinating look at the wolves on the north coast of British Columbia - that have relatively little contact with humans - and how they have adapted to their marine environment and interact with other animals in their ecosystem. It's akin to Never Cry Wolf, only with more science and less narrative.

Beautifully written book that will give you great insights into the lives of other animals.

A wonderfully written book about a scientist named Ian McAllister (also the author) about the wolves in B.C( British Columbia) some of the very last ones on earth.

I'd wanted to read The Last Wild Wolves, but this appeared to be the updated edition, and judging by the epilogue at the end of the book, I'd definitely recommend trying to get your hands on this edition. Great read. Not incredible writing, but not bad either. Not too preachy (for me anyways) or redundant. The immersion into the territory is great, lots to learn, and these wolves really are fascinating. Great short read.

This book was an insightful look into the lives of the unique wolves of British Columbia's rain forests. Having read many books of this genre, I didn't feel it was the most well-written book of its kind. Nevertheless, the stories, photographs and overall experience was worth the read and considering the many threats to this region these days, it is a must-read for both British Columbians and Canadians.

I really enjoyed this book! The writer did an excellent job of providing the background history, biology, and geography that the reader needs in order to understand wolves. I was completely surprised and fascinated to learn about wolves living in coastal environments and among islands 5 miles apart.

This book is exactly the same as The Last Wild Wolves: Ghosts of the Rainforest, except that the epilog has been updated.
