The Real Wolf is an in-depth study of wolves' impact on big game and livestock populations as a federally protected species. Expert 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, biologists, geneticists, outdoor enthusiasts, and wildlife experts who have spent years studying wolves and wolf behavior. Every section describes 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 instead advocates a new system of species management that would allow wolves, game animals, and farmers to coexist with one another in an environmentally sustainable way.
