Annie Marie Musselman was given the rare opportunity to photograph the wolves at the Wolf Haven sanctuary near Mount Rainier. The wolves here have been displaced from their natural homes and come from a variety of captive environments. Some of the pups will be raised with the possibility of releasing them into the wild. Human contact is very limited, so the images captured by Musselman express a wild spirit that is very different than anything seen in domesticated animals. Brenda Peterson’s essay puts the stories of the residents of Wolf Haven and the wolves of North America into context as she describes the behavior patterns and social structure of wolf packs. The present wolf narrative is about the attempt to pull this species back from the edge of extinction and new ways humans are finding to coexist with these wild animals.
 
Annie Marie Musselman is a fine-art photographer whose work has appeared in the New Yorker, National Geographic, Audubon, the Wall Street Journal, Orion, the New York Times, and Outside, among other publications.
 
Brenda Peterson, a novelist, memoirist, and nature writer, is the author of seventeen books including Living by Water, I Want to be Left Behind, and Your Life is a Book. She has written about wolves for The Huffington Post.
