The crash of Gordon Haber's research plane in Denali National Park ended his life, his research, and his fierce advocacy for Alaska's wolves. In Among Wolves, a journey through Haber's 43 years with wolves, we witness individual wolf families' astonishing cooperation as well as the devastation wrought by hunting, trapping, and predator control. Reading Haber's journals, hearing stories from friends, we feel the passion and wonder that Haber never lost.
