Hunt for the Shadow Wolf: The lost history of wolves in Britain and the myths and stories that surround them

by Derek Gow Author

From the author of Bringing Back the Beaver, this is the story of something that no longer exists: wolves in Britain. Farmer, author, and nature conservationist Derek Gow shares the story of his search to understand the life and end of wolves in England. Sleuthing, he's pieced together narrative fragments to weave a story of this animal turned beast. He came to understand that its extinction was directly related to human motives of power and profit. His original research started with looking to reintroduce beavers for ecological benefits. His goal of healing the landscape led him to the story of the demonized and misunderstood canines. This book contains plenty of dry British humor -- biting but tender.
