An extraordinary portrait of the lives of wolves, the researchers who study them, and the rustic highlanders who share their landscape - in the mysterious wilds of Transylvania. Here we take an enchanting journey, tracking wolves through the deeps snows and dark forests of Romania, where "Old Europe" still hangs on, hardly touched by modern trends or discovered by western travelers. Guided with humor, insight, and vivid description, we make a memorable trek, fending off belligerent shepherd dogs and foul weather to discover history, legend, and myth: Ancient "wolf-warriors" (Dacians), colorful Romani (Gypsies), legendary vampires (Dracula), and more. Contemplating the benefits of wilderness, the joys of self-discovery, and the nature of time and consciousness, we are also entertained with 32 pages of stunning color photographs.
