Helen and Bill Thayer, accompanied by their part-wolf, mostly Husky dog, Charlie, set out to live among wild wolf packs — first in the Canadian Yukon and then in the Arctic. When they set up camp within 100 feet of a wolf den, they were greeted with apprehension. But they establish trust over time because the wolves accept Charlie as the alpha male of the newly arrived "pack." Readers travel with the Thayers as they learn about wolf family structure, view the intricacies of the hunt, the wolves’ finely honed survival skills, and playfulness.

I used to own the hard cover version of this book....loved it so much, I had to download the digital version!
I got to meet Helen Thayer a few years ago when she was doing a presentation at the Seattle Mountaineers clubhouse to promote her book, "Walking the Gobi." She's a great storyteller and pulls you in so that you feel like you're on the adventure with her. I was amazed at the new information I learned about wolves, crows, and polar bears.
Great account of living in a remote location alongside totally wild wolves. If you want to learn how wolves live when in their own environment, this is the book for you. I loved every page. Charlie, the author's part wolf dog, comes alive on the pages, along with all the wolves in the pack. Well written, this book brings the natural world into your living room. I was surprised and very pleased to find the author's observtions about other wild life and the way different species interact in their own environment. Educational, entertaining and altogether a thoroughly good read. I recommend this to anyone, but particularly those wishing to learn more about the way wolves live and interact in the wild.
I adore Helen Thayer's books. Adventure, travel, incredible experiences. Three Among the Wolves was beautiful and absolutely riveting. Anyone who loves real adventure and travel writing should check this book out. You won't be disappointed.
