THE WOLF: Ghost Hunter by Daniel Leboeuf, photographs by Thomas Kitchin & Victoria Hurst (Firefly: $19.95; 144 pp.). Long-legged and graceful, the wolf (Canis lupus) inspires fear and awe. Its efficiency as predator has enabled it to survive centuries of merciless hunting by humans. In his brief, articulate text, Leboeuf comments, "A pack of hunting wolves killing its prey is nothing more than the duality that confronts us every day in nature and in life." Most readers will be drawn to the exceptional photos of wolves engaged in activities that range from nursing pups to hunting mice.
