WHAT FOLKS ARE SAYING

        About the Secret world of Red wolves

 
 

"This excellent history makes clear the verdict that lies immediately ahead: the red wolf saved, America's triumph; the red wolf lost, America's shame."
--Edward O. Wilson, Harvard University


“In this, the first complete telling of the comeback of the red wolf, nature writer Beeland examines all aspects of this misunderstood canine. The combination of first-person immediacy interwoven with red wolf history will delight animal lovers.”

--Nancy Bent, Booklist


"Fascinating and beautifully written. Beeland covers the red wolf in an engaging and clear manner, and the action is page-turning. An important resource for scholars of wildlife and the environmental movement."
--Laura Helmuth, science and health editor, Slate.com


“No general nonfiction books -- let alone scholarly works -- have focused exclusively on the red wolf, so this volume is a very welcome addition. . . A valuable resource for natural history collections. Highly recommended.”
--C.E. Buckley, reviewer for CHOICE magazine


"Beeland brings the red wolf and its world--weird, wild howl and all--to splendid life. This elusive, beautiful, and beleaguered animal has found a teller worthy of its tale."
--David Dobbs, science writer & contributor to New York Times, Wired, National Geographic, and The Atlantic


"A fascinating journey to the threatened world of the red wolf. DeLene Beeland provides readers with the intriguing story of these mysterious predators and the people working to preserve their precarious survival."
--Dan Vergano, USA Today


“Fascinating, a must-read for both scientific and popular audiences.”
--Wolf Print


I'm not familiar with science writing awards, but I do think The Secret World of Red Wolves deserves one. Ms. Beeland's prose makes for easy reading, even though some of the topics covered in the book can be quite complex. Her research is thorough and presented in a way a layman can understand and find interesting.”

-- Mark Gelbart, author of Georgia Before People



“On the topic of red wolves this book ranks second to none. It is a quick read, is understandable, and provides very thorough and frank discussions of the many issues threatening the red wolf’s continued existence.”                                                             -- Richard P. Thiel, author of Keepers of the Wolves
