Description
National Book Award Finalist: A "brilliant" study of the science and mythology of the wolf by the New York Times -bestselling author of Arctic Dreams ( The Washington Post ). When John Fowles reviewed Of Wolves and Men , he called it "A remarkable book, both biologically absorbing and humanly rich, and one that should be read by every concerned American." In this National Book Award-shortlisted work, literary master Barry Lopez guides us through the world of the wolf and our often-mistaken perceptions of another species' place on our shared planet. Throughout the centuries, the wolf has been a figure of fascination and mystery, and a major motif in literature and myth. Inspiring fear and respect, the creature has long exerted a powerful influence on the human imagination. Of Wolves and Men takes the reader into the world of the Canis lupus and its relationship to humankind through the ages. Lopez draws on science, history, mythology, and his own field research to present a compelling portrait of wolves both real and imagined, dispelling our fear of them while celebrating their place in our history, legends, and hearts. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Barry Lopez including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.
