This book is a treasure The author has spent seventeen years photographing and observing several unique wolf packs on the northern coast of British Columbia These wolves are genetically different from inland wolves because they have been isolated by the enormous coastal mountain range.The photos are stunningly beautiful and the text accompanying them is inspiring and informative I learned a lot about wolf behavior and their interactions with other coastal species such as bears, ravens, salmon, and orca whales Wolves are the true apex predators in this environment, and have been known to dine on bears The Surf Pack even eats barnacles The author shows a tremendous love and respect for these magnificent animals and their habitat It really comes through in his writing It s shameful that greed and willful destruction are killing them and fouling their home There s also a DVD that comes with this book I ve only watched the first few minutes of it so far, but the scenery is spe
