The Wisdom of Wolves: Understand How Wolves Can Teach Us To Be More Human

by Elli Radinger - £14.99  Penguin Books Ltd (Michael Joseph Ltd) (2019)
hardback    ISBN 13: 9780241346716 | ISBN 10: 0241346711

They care for their elderly, play with their kids, and always put family first. Can we all learn something from the wisdom of wolves?
 
In this unforgettable book, wolf expert and naturalist Elli Radinger draws on her 25 years of first-hand experience among the wolves of Yellowstone National Park to tell us their remarkable stories.
 
Wolves aren't wolfish.
 
They can die of broken hearts, show tenderness to their young and elderly, and their packs are led by couples, with the key decisions made by females. They play, they pretend and they predate.
 
They are more complex than we ever knew and more like us than we ever imagined.
 
You'll meet Oh-Six, the she-wolf whose bold hunting technique astounded the most experienced biologists, Casanova who succeeded in luring his love away from her pack, and Druid alpha male 21, the magnanimous and compassionate leader.
 
Ultimately, Radinger shows how much we can learn from these beautiful and mysterious creatures, and how much there is to gain from emulating the wisdom of wolves.
