Back cover copy

After photographing the wildlife of the Arctic, the assignment which led to the creation of Arctic Wild, Herb and Lois Crisler decided to bring home the five orphaned tundra wolf cubs they had reared. In remote Crag Cabin, their home near Lake George, Colorado, the Crislers built an interlocking series of wide pens in the hope of preserving for their charges some measure of the freedom they would have known in the wild. It didn't work. The dominant female, Alatna, was the only survivor. Captive Wild is the often-heartbreaking narrative of both the growing trust and affection between Lois Crisler and the female wolf, and the enormous consequences of Lois' pledge to devote seven years of her life to Alatna. Crisler's chronicle of the years with Alatna and her retinue is suffused with love and respect. (6 X 9, 248 pages, b&w photos)show more
