Moreover, coyotes were reported to be common in this park during an earlier period of wolf control (Carbyn, 2003). Similarly, in Algonquin Park, Ontario, an area with high wolf densities, no coyotes were detected, but they were common in adjacent areas outside the park where there were no wolves (Pimlott and Joslin, 1968).

The Wood Buffalo National Park of northwestern Canada is one of the last places left in North America where wolves and bison still exist in the predator-prey relationship of pre-Columbian times. Carbyn (a research scientist emeritus for the Canadian Wildlife Service) traveled to the park and describes his observations of the interactions between the two species. He also looks at efforts by ranchers to have the government allow the killing of the buffalo because of their worries of disease infecting their herds, as well as opposing efforts by conservationists.

Lu Carbyn's "Buffalo Wolf" is a short, easy-to-read account of the author's own experiences living out in the field with these two majestic species. Although the accounts of wolf attacks on bison are exquisitely detailed and sensitively described, some of the most enjoyable moments of the book come in the form of Carbyn's many adventures trying to reconcile his worlds of wolves and men.
In one particularly entertaining chapter, the author explains how he mistakenly agreed to help two different film crews get footage of his study subjects during the same trip to the field. Because one crew was French and the other British, Carbyn likened the tension between the crews to an European war, as both crews trudged towards each other, laden with heavy equipment and less than happy to see the other on "their" shooting site. Of course, the wolves soon steal the show once again when a large male approaches one of the cameras to give it a good sniff, coming eye-to-eye with the camera crew.
Lu Carbyn brings his readers so close to the wolves that it feels as if the reader has been there with him, hearing the howl of the wolves and the bison's soft grunts and thundering hooves. "Buffalo Wolf" is a must-read for anyone who admires the wilderness or any of the creatures that inhabit it.

Lu Carbyn's book presents a totally new perspective on wolves, bison, and wildlife management and research. His recounting of his time in the field, his personal observations, the politics and the bureaucracy interwoven with the science he tries to hold to is honest and revealing. His love for the land he returns to time after time shines through most of all. If you are looking for a "wolf book" that is personal and thought-provoking, Mr. Carbyn's THE BUFFALO WOLF: PREDATORS, PREY, AND THE POLITICS OF NATURE is one you will want to read.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who has ever heard a wolf howl or to anyone who has ever dreamed of hearing a wolf howl! Lu Carbyn is a man of science who writes with a poet's skill. His knowledge paired with his compassion takes us to the mysterious and ever-changing world of the Buffalo Wolf National Park, one of our world's treasures. The predator/prey interactions, the politics of wildlife management, the basic and sometimes cruel ways of nature -- Lu presents these issues and challenges us to ask the question, "How much management is too much?" Truly a spectacular book!

Powerful real life adventures of a biologist working one on one with bison and wolves in the north. If you're wondering what goes on behind the scenes of those nature documentaries this is the book. Not for the faint of heart though. Makes you feel like rooting for the beleagured bison to once, just once, get revenge on the wolf. In the end however, it turns out that humanity is more of a problem than the wolves. Big interests with agri-agendas want to destroy this particular bison herd. I liked the book's no nonsense approach to the "people problems" and behind the scenes politics.
