A
“Face to face with Wolves” is actually a booklet rather than a book (29 pages with very big type, big margins, plenty of space, photos and other visuals). It gives a good visual impression, and the photographs are amazing (What else can you expect from wildlife photographer Jim Brandenburg?)

It is also a warm and charming story about Brandeburg’s personal history with wolves.

The booklet’s weakness is the quality of its factual information – it seems sloppily researched. It is in several places fa

I'd have this book in my non-fiction class library section. It would be a good source book for any student studying wolves. It's also a good read in conjunction with studies about the food chain and animal endangerment and protection.

Another nice entry in the "Face to Face" series. Conversational and informative but it's the photos that inspire the wow. The narrative is followed by a two-page spread with additional facts for reports.

Beautiful real-life pictures, great information about wolves. Could be a little more in-depth but there are great sources in the back for more info, including some great web sites. Though a tad preachy about conservationism and protecting wolves, this is an overall top-notch book.
