Book Summary: The Sea Wolves sets out to disprove the notion of "the Big Bad Wolf," especially as it is applied to the unique strain of wolves that live in the rainforest along the Pacific coast of Canada. Genetically distinct from wolves in any other part of the world, coastal wolves can swim like otters and fish like the bears with whom they share the rainforest. These wolves are highly social and fiercely intelligent. Living in the isolated wilderness of the Great Bear Rainforest, coastal wolves have a unique relationship with the First Nations people, who have shared their territory for thousands of years and have long offered the wolf a place of respect and admiration within their culture. Illustrated with almost one hundred of Ian McAllister's magnificent photographs, The Sea Wolves presents a strong case for the importance of preserving the Great Bear Rainforest for the wolves, the bears and the other unique creatures that live there.
