CURIOSITY. COMPASSION. FAMILY FIRST.
After living among the wolves of The Sawtooth Pack for years, Jim and Jamie Dutcher present a new book, The Wisdom of Wolves: Lessons from the Sawtooth Pack, providing groundbreaking observations of their unique experience.
As strong, and just as immediately recognizable as the ties that unite a human family, the emotional bonds shared among wolves are far more complex than ever realized, and now are detailed in this exceptional book.
The Dutchers’ unparalleled involvement with wolves in the Sawtooth Mountains of Idaho shows beyond a doubt that reason, caring and emotion are not unique to human beings. In this fascinating new book, the Dutchers go beyond their own studies to share the work of experts in the field, from Denali to Yellowstone, clearly confirming their unique personal observations.
The Wisdom of Wolves: Lessons from the Sawtooth Pack will fascinate anyone interested in the inner social lives of wolves while sharing important information with wildlife conservation advocates of all ages.

It is about their struggle to keep the project alive amid marauding mountain lions, forest fires, subzero temperatures, and the never-ending storm of controversy that surrounds the wolf.
