7 Books About Wolves

Lari Don gets in touch with her wild side

I’ve written about wolves more often than I ever expected, both my own fictional wolves and retellings of old tales about wolves. In order to get to know the true wolf, I’ve followed wolf-print trails down a lot of (literary) paths. By immersing myself in so much factual and fictional writing about wolves, with wolves portrayed as both goodies and baddies, I have realised that how we react to wolves says far more about ourselves than about any wolf.
