Much of the book consists of amusing anecdotes and quotations from conservation and wildlife magazines concerning wolves, coyotes and foxes. Most of the factual material here is recapitulated in the very brief final chapter. Poorly organized material and failure to clarify the distinction between species, particularly of the wolf family, make this more of an amusement than a handbook or guide. The practice of bounty hunting, alternately deplored and defended, is handled with equivocation. The author's method is similar to that she employed with more success in her last title, American ions and Cats (1963, p. 561 J-193). While this has an almost recreational zest in approaching the subject, and it feeds reader appetite for the odd fact, it is not a book easy to use for informational purposes.
