Item Description...
From award-winning photographer Scott Ian Barry comes Wolf Empire--the most comprehensive and stunning visual record of wolves ever published in black-and-white photography. In this world of fur and teeth, texture and shape, light and shadow, Barry creates a highly intimate look at wolves and their often mystifying way of life.

Each high-quality photograph is accompanied by a narrative in which Barry relates the circumstances that led to the taking of the photo, or some unique personal observation about wolf behavior gathered from his more than thirty years of experience as a wildlife photographer. His great reverence for these magnificent animals comes through in frame after frame of wolves in varying degrees of harmony and aggression, excitement and tranquility, cooperation and solitude--all part of their experience and essential to their survival. Barry's photographs show wolves for the individuals they are, a species as diverse as humans.

From The Book Jacket
From award-winning photographer Scott Ian Barry comes Wolf Empire--the most comprehensive and stunning visual record of wolves ever published in black-and-white photography. In more than one hundred images of fur and teeth, texture and shape, light and shadow - many printed here for the first time - Barry creates a highly intimate look at a world seldom seen by the human eye.

Having spent more than three decades observing and photographing wolves, and teaching and traveling with them. Barry is one of the most knowledgeable and dedicated champions of the species. In Wolf Empire, he invites us to enter this amazing and mysterious universe, encouraging us to see ourselves as part of a living planet, one that is shared with and made infinitely more interesting by these marvelous animals.
As Barry helps us to understand the wide array of behavior and personality of wolves, shown here in words and photographs, we see what fascinating creatures they truly are. In sharp contrast to the sinister image of the wolf from folklore and fairy tale, Barry's photographs depict wolves as highly intelligent, social, affectionate, and often playful beings.
Destined to become a classic, Wolf Empire is a unique tribute to one of the world's most beloved and revered species.

wolfs  Sep 19, 2008
This book is pritty good but its not one of the best wolf books out there. It has alot of pictures and some useful information but it can have a whole lot more like other wolf books that i have read, but all in all if you are looking to learn about them this book does teach you information about them.
AMAZING! Enter Barry's Wolf Kingdom!  Sep 3, 2008
Barry displays wonderful and capturing photos of these gorgeous animals! His photographic talent and knowledge of wolves is evident and I highly recommend this book to anyone with a beginning interest of the wolf to those that have a mission to preserve and support wolf re-introduction. Learn about wolves in their natural environment, study their beautiful balance and poise, and enjoy the amazing photos captured by enthusiast and expert Scott Barry! Do not pass up on this incredible book!
Fascinating Portraits of Lupine Lives  Jun 23, 2008
I have a deep fascination with wolves and I'm always on the lookout for more to read about them. This book was a gift from my husband, and it didn't disappoint. Barry's writing is friendly, informal, and informative. He is clearly in awe of his subjects and treats them with respect, but also has a sense of humor that makes his text and his photography equally engaging. If you skip over the text, that's fine, because the main attraction is the photography. Barry captures some truly intimate pictures of wolves. They are at once as familiar as domestic dogs and as fierce and mysterious as folklore has always depicted them. The elaborate rankings and rituals of wolf society are depicted and helpfully explained, but what really interested me were the shots that showed the individual personalities that make up a pack, and the pictures of wolves' faces that were so expressive. The stark black and white tones allow you to focus fully on the wolves, but Barry's descriptions of a wolf's eyes or the subtle shading of color in its fur made me wish at least a few pictures had been in color.
One of the most beautiful wildlife collection I've sean   Feb 29, 2008
This is a wonderful collection of images. One of the most beautiful wildlife collection I've seen in a long time. A must for wolf lovers!
