Editorial Reviews

“Jim and Jamie Dutcher offer a rare and insightful view into the hidden lives of wolves. Though this species is often misunderstood, these remarkable animals have much to teach us if we will take the time to learn.” Robert Redford, American actor, director, producer, and activist
“Jim and Jamie look back on their experiences and make a heartfelt plea for smarter and kinder treatment of these majestic animals.” Washington Post
“A gorgeous reflection on society—both human and animal alike—and the ways that mammals react to each other with camaraderie, compassion, kindness, and, at times, conflict.” Esquire
“Through the stories and life lessons in the book…the couple hopes readers can get a better picture of wolves and glean some of the wisdom they imparted to the Dutchers.” Idaho Mountain Express
“Those who read this book will have a greater understanding of these charismatic animals (who share an ancestor with our domestic dogs), and, it is hoped, will be inspired to become active stewards of the wild world.” Bark! (Canada)
“An accessible book for nature lovers that imparts wisdom for humanity. For all readers in need of a reminder to be the best that they can be.” Library Journal
“The authors challenge the cultural perception of wolves as ruthless with more positive stories of wolf behavior…sharing stories as if they were doting grandparents. This optimistic expression of faith in the everyday wisdom of wolf and humankind alike shows the wolves as a reflection of the best in humans.” Publishers Weekly
