    1. I found "Among Wolves" fascinating. I have always loved wolves and the depth of work, insight, and passion Gordon Haber had for the Alaskan wolf population is remarkable. I found it most poignant that there is a description of the days following Haber's plane crash. There are accounts of the wolves howling in mourning as they do when their mate or another of their family group is lost as if they knew how important Gordon Haber was to and for them.When I picked up this book I wasn't honestly sure [...]


    2. That book was "bang on" addressing my interest in animal sociology/psychology. It was fascinating to read that young pup learns for two years, which is about 25% of total of its life. The family of wolves develops traditions and creates cultures, which are in jeopardy if alfa male/female dies. The wolves spend time playing almost each 30 minutes during their travels. The yearlings take care of the pups. The wolves group cooperates in breeding and hunting. The ending was a little bit repetitive. [...]


    3. Because Gordon Haber died in a plane crash a few years ago, this book, although mostly written by Gordon Haber, was put together posthumously by Marybeth Holleman. In this case, it could be excused for being a bit scattered, but it is pretty focused. There is some repetition toward the end, where the author(s) spend some time trying to get their point across, but most of the book is just very engaging. The wolf observations Haber describes are fascinating. I believe the main point of the book is [...]


    4. This book tells the story of the wolves of Denali National Park. Written mostly by Gordon Haber (taken from his journals, tweets, notes, observations, and blog posts), it looks at the wolves with familiarity (but not contempt), wonder, and passion. Haber followed the wolves year-round in helicopters and on the ground, for over 40 years. He came to know many of them, their families and their lineages. He writes about wolf "families" because in his decades of observation he understood that wolves [...]


    5. Exceptional book on Gordon Haber and his love of wolves. It's unfortunate that we allow states to destroy our beautiful animals all in the name of HUNTERS. I am horrified by Alaska and their Fish and Game Dept. They are destroying the state and all the beauty it holds. It's a definite read if you enjoy the great outside and wolves in particular. This book will break your heart in good ways and bad.


    6. A very readable science book that taught me some interesting information about wolves. Also, a nice tribute to a remarkable and important field scientist, who easily should have had another 10 years of contributions to make. Too bad he died prematurely. Alaska's wolves are surely suffering for Haber's loss.


    7. Really enjoying this one. Had no idea wolves were this intelligent or social. (Side note for SciFi fans this book makes the Tines of "A Fire Upon The Deep" seem like a lot less of a stretch than I had thought.)


    8. Quite simply the finest book about wolves I have ever read. I learned more about wolf society and biology from this book than the previous fifty years of reading and documentaries combined.


    9. Great book for those interested in natural history and especially wolf behavior, family dynamics etc. Written with a scientist's perspective, yet for the layman.
