The world’s leading wolf expert describes the first years of a major study that transformed our understanding of one of nature’s most iconic creaturesGreg Breining will be at the Janesville Public Library on Thursday, December 2 6:00 p.m. for a discussion of his new book, co-written with L. David Mech, Wolf Island: Discovering the Secrets of a Mythic Animal.

Wolf Island recounts three extraordinary summers and winters L. David Mech spent on the isolated outpost of Isle Royale National Park, tracking and observing wolves and moose on foot and by airplane—and upending the common misperception of wolves as destructive killers of insatiable appetite. 

"Fans of wolves, field biology, and good natural history writing will welcome Mech’s long-overdue reminiscences." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"No scientist has done more to shape our understanding of wolves than L. David Mech, and no ecosystem has been more influential than Isle Royale. Wolf Island is a lively, well-told story that sheds new light on the early days of ecology’s most important long-term study, the formative years of a master biologist, and the complex lives of an iconic and misunderstood predator." —Ben Goldfarb, author of Eager: The Surprising, Secret Life of Beavers and Why They Matter
