I must say that Wolves: Ecology... is the best wolf book out there! It tells about almost everything there is to a wolf that is known!

This is perfect! Been looking for something like this, and I've been searching everywhere for a copy of Wolves: Behaviour, Ecology and Conservation. Online version is better than nothing :wink:

The Hidden Life of Wolves is another fantastic wolf book, though it focuses mainly on captive, unrelated wolves. Still gives a lot of insight on wolfs behaviour and life though, and does occasionally discuss some interesting accounts of wolves in the wild.

I wish I could add something, but I have recently realized how much false information I have absorbed despite (or because) I have had the passion for these animals since I was very young... And well the facts I thought I knew need some serious updating. So I just want to say thank you for this amazing data source and the opportunity to ask questions.

I also have been writing kind of "wolf stories" for my own personal fun. I aim to tell the tale in a way that everything in it, the nature and its creatures, are as realistic as possible... This forum really helps.

Wolf Quest seems to have grown to be a quest for a lot more than a mere game for kids (though it is an awesome game too). :D
