About the Author

JIM & JAMIE DUTCHER lived in a tented camp in Idaho's Sawtooth Mountains among a pack of wolves, observing and documenting rarely seen social behavior. Their time spent living with the Sawtooth Pack led to three documentary films, three Emmy Awards, and the founding of a ground-breaking organization, Living wth Wolves. The Hidden Life of Wolves was published by National Geographic in 2013.

Praise For…

"Captivating, full-color photography illustrates this inspirational story of animal friendship, highly recommended for wolf aficionados of all ages." – Midwest Book Review

"Although this is a book about studying and understanding wolf behavior, elementary schools would do well to adopt it to use as a springboard for discussions about human bullying... This book is highly recommended for early elementary classrooms." – Picture Book Depot
