Book Description

15 Oct 2010 Face to Face (Paperback National Geographic)
Jim Brandenburg has lived with wolves. They surround his home in Minnesota where he has observed the same wolf families for years in and out of the seasons. He's watched them hunt and play, forage for food, and raise cubs. And he's photographed white Arctic wolves in a pack that was so remote, it had not yet developed a fear of people. He shares his gripping experiences and moving encounters along with fascinating information about the life of a wolf, from hunting habits to how they raise their young. And he makes a persuasive case for protecting the threatened wolf and shows how humans and wolves can live together safely and in harmony. Jim Brandenburg's wolf photographs are some of the best in the world. From frolicking cubs to lone wolves by moonlight to Arctic wolves leaping on ice floes, Jim has recorded the beautiful and mysterious world of the wolf. In "Face to Face With Wolves", he shares the intimacy of his own wolf encounters inspiring readers to want to learn more about this intriguing North American mammal. As with each "Face to Face" book, helpful and accessible back matter, especially designed for report writers, includes a facts-at-a-glance section, a conservation feature, a science inquiry exercise, a glossary, an index, and how to find out more.

2.0 out of 5 stars FACE TO FACE WITH WOLVES 22 Sep 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love any sort of animal, especially wolves, so when I saw this book on the website thought I would buy it, but I was very disappointed. It was extremely thin, and was not very informative. If I'd have known I would not have bought it which is a shame. I did expect a lot more to be included.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Wolves 11 Nov 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a gift for my niece. I chose it as it was "National Geographic". The ad looked like a "coffee table" book, in truth it's a small child centred in text, volume. The delivery was painfully slow, the cost of the book would have been worth it if it had been a "coffee table" type book, but not for this slim volume. The packaging was really tight & difficult to open, & revealed a torn jacket, once opened! As it's supposed to be a gift, I cannot pass it on with a torn jacket.
This experience puts me off buying further books through Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a fascinating book about wolves and has some very stunning photography! Does anyone want to learn to "speak wolf?" 12 Oct 2009
By D. Fowler - Published on Amazon.com
Jim Brandenburg says that "if you want to follow wolves in the wild, you have to think like a wolf." He wanted to see them when he was young, but they are an elusive animal and don't often let themselves be seen. Years later, he finally was able to see and photograph them in the Canadian Arctic, where they aren't quite as shy. After three summers he left to return home to northern Minnesota, anxious to use the skills he had learned . . . this time perhaps he would be able to find and photograph them!

Judy, his wife, who also holds a fascination with wolves, helped Jim write this book. The red wolf and the gray wolf live in North America. Many people used to hate and fear wolves. Do you remember Laura's father, Charles Ingalls, from the Little House series? He was so petrified of the wolves his hair practically stood on end? Today people aren't as frightened of them because people like the Brandenburgs are educating us about their ways. Scientists say wolf families are similar to human families in that they actually take care of one another and have a social structure!

Sadly wolves in the lower 48 states are on the endangered species list. This book is very comprehensive and sympathetic toward the wolf. The photography is stunning and the storyline is quite appealing. The book has a map, fascinating sidebar material, a "How You Can Help" section, ideas on how to enjoy wolves, "Facts at A Glance," a glossary, and lists additional recommended books and web sites. Does anyone want to learn how to "speak wolf?"

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for children and adults 3 Jan 2012
By Farranfore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The photos are a good way to introduce younger children to wolves and the text can be added at any time. There is only one picture that shows wolves eating prey and it is not especially vivid. My four year old grandson was not shocked or disturbed by this.
