Painted Wolves - A Wild Dog's Life

The painted wolf (Lycaon pictus) is a unique and remarkable creature. Yet for the last 100 years, the painted wolf has endured an outrageous onslaught, which has seen their numbers decrease from 500,000 a century ago to only 6,500 today. This 99% reduction in their population has put the wolf ’s survival on a knife-edge.

Painted Wolves: A Wild Dog’s Life is their story. It is told with insight and passion from two people who know them well, each with their own unique perspective on this endearing animal.

The book is illustrated with more than 220 stunning images. Each photograph tells a story in its own right and brings alive the captivating and mysterious world of the painted wolves and the lives of those around them.

100% of the profits from this book go to the Painted Wolf Foundation.

    The service & delivery time offered by HPH was exceptional.I have ordered many books through them and have never been disappointed. The book " Painted Wolves", quite simply, magnificent! It is not only extremely informative and easy to read, but is superbly illustrated with the most amazing photographs. One feels truly privileged to be drawn into the lives of these incredibly special animals and to share in the author's passionate dedication to them. It is a coffee table book I shall always treasure!
