Soux is such a pretty girl.

It's that moment. That picture right there that helps to express the beauty I see in wolves. Her name is Soux. She lives on a wolf sanctuary in Indiana called Red Wolf Sanctuary. Her beauty is what is pure in this world of hate and violence. And she is just a puppy.

Julie of the Wolves

The book that started my fascination with wolves in the fifth grade. It really is a great book and gives an inside look into how a wolf pack operated through the eyes of a young girl lost in the Alaska wilderness.

Living With Wolves

Living With Wolves is a book and documentary film that follows Jim and Jamie Dutcher as they set out to raise wild wolves in a massive, natural enclosure in the Sawtooth Mountains, for the purpose of studying wolves and understanding what the wolf really is. Their journey is one of love and loss, and together they learn that wolves are not so different from human beings after all. Jim and Jamie Dutcher have contributed tons of information, photos, and audio of wolves as a result of this project, which lasted 6 years before they released the Sawtooth Pack into the wild near Yellowstone National Park.
