The Wisdom of Wolves

ELLI H RADINGER Michael Joseph, Hardback, £14.99

A world expert in the study of wolves, Elli Radinger has spent much of the last 25 years observing wolves in the Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA. She outlines stories of many of the wolves she has studied and comes to the conclusion that we can learn a lot from the way they live. From the first time she kissed a wolf, she decided to give up the life of an attorney-at-law in Germany in favour of giving in to her fascination for wolves. She examines the family importance of the pack, the leadership and strength of the female wolves as well as the wisdom of old age and having a place to belong. A new slant on wolf-life - but a fascinating one.

Towards Mellbreak

MARIE-ELSA BRAGG Vintage, Paperback, £12.99

Mellbreak is dawn breaking on a fell and this is a plea for a way of life that is almost at an end - farming on the fells. The author, Marie-Elsa Bragg - now a priest in London - has French and Cumbrian roots and this, her first book, follows the troubles of a family eking out a living on a lonely farm in the fells. In a tough farming life where the church creates a small oasis in the working week Marie-Elsa Bragg - daughter of Lord Melvyn Bragg - has treated a tender if tough tale, owing, perhaps to her own difficulties in life since her parents separated when she was young and, when she was six, faced the trauma of her mother’s suicide.
