The new book by Elli H. Radinger coming soon in English!

Elli Radinger has been observing wild wolves for over 25 years. This wolf expert shares with us her discoveries on the intelligence of these animals, and their ability to devote themselves to others, even if it means sacrificing their own life.

The myth of the big bad wolf, agressive and solitary, is completely untrue. If you love nature, animals and adventures, this book is for you!
