The Real Wolf
The Science, Politics, and Economics of Co-existing with Wolves in Modern Times
The Real Wolf is an in-depth study of the impact that wolves have had on big game and livestock populations as a federally protected species. Authors, Ted B. Lyon and Will N. Graves, sift through the myths and misinformation surrounding wolves and present the facts about wolves in modern times. Each chapter in the book is meticulously researched and written by authors, scientists and wolf experts who have spent years studying wolves and wolf behavior. Each describe a unique aspect of the wolf in the United States. The Real Wolf does not call for the eradication of wolves from the United States, but rather advocates a new system of species management that would allow wolves, game animals, and farmers to co-exist with one another.
