1:30 PM to 5:00 PM

Courtenay resident Paula Wild launches her new book, Return of the Wolf: Conflict and Coexistence (Douglas & McIntyre, $32.95), on Saturday, October 13 at the Native Sons Hall (360 Cliffe Avenue) in Courtenay, BC. Wild will be signing copies of her book at 1:30 pm, followed by a fascinating visual presentation “In Search of the Real Wolf” running from 2:30 to 3:30 pm.

Admission is free and children are welcome to attend. The event is wheelchair accessible via the lower Cliffe Avenue entrance. Coffee and tea will be served and books will be available for purchase courtesy of Laughing Oyster Bookshop.

In Return of the Wolf, Paula Wild examines the evolving relationship between humans and wolves, as our territories increasingly overlap and our interactions with wolves grow evermore frequent. Return of the Wolf weaves together everything from natural history and interviews with conservationists to centuries-old mysteries and legends from around the world, and traces society’s attitudes toward wolves that once led to near-extinction.

“The wolves that appear in Wild’s impressive new book are complex, intelligent and fascinating animals … a pleasure for anyone who loves the outdoors or wildlife, and a useful corrective to the myths that surround the wolf.” — The Vancouver Sun

Wild is the author of The Cougar: Beautiful, Wild and Dangerous (Douglas & McIntyre, 2013) which received the highest award in the nature category of the Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards. She lives in Courtenay, BC, but her research for Return of the Wolf took her all over the Pacific Northwest, from the northern tip of Vancouver Island to Washington State.
