Xmarx Scale Terrain/Buildings. Originally conceived as a test-bed for a future OmniMech, the Arctic Wolf BattleMech was produced on Arc-Royal by Clan Wolf-in-Exile to both bolster the Clan's touman and work out the kinks in production of its Omni-Pod at the same time. Like the Pack Hunter, some materials used in the design were obtained from the Kell Hounds, though the design is Clan-tech in every way that matters.

Mech, L. D. 1997. The Arctic Wolf: Ten Years With the Pack. Voyageur Press, Stillwater, MN. 144 pp. (English, Hungarian, and Czech) Honorable Mention, National Outdoor Book Awards, 1998. This book contains the same text and many of the same photos as The Arctic Wolf: Living with the Pack (below) but substitutes many new photos for those in the earlier book and updates the material through 1997.

This is the penultimate book on this species, in situ. Over ten years, Dr. Mech studied this vanishing breed and reported his and his assistant's findings. This is a must read book for those who value and want to save the Wilderness in which the Arctic Wolf lives. You will be a better human being for having read it. This is, over course, a layman's emotional response, but I'm sure you will see what I mean when you have read it.

Not much substance to the text. "I went North, I watched the wolves take down some prey, I went back again, I didn't learn a whole heck of a lot about the wolves". The big breakthrough was in just getting close to them at all.

To be fair, at the time, it was a lot more contact than anyone else had been getting with wolves, but the book really just whets your appetite for the sequel, _10 years with the wolf pack_.

Nice pictures.

L. David Mech (NOT David L.) achieved something that most biologists could only dream about: he gained the trust of a wild pack of wolves on Ellesmere Island, in the high Arctic. You may have read the National Geographic article he wrote about it.

The book is more or less a filled-out version of the NG article. It's simply laid out and nicely presented with lots of photographs.

Most of the book concerns the pack's everyday activities and behaviour - socialising, hunting, feeding pups, and so on. There's some information on wolves in general, for people who are completely new to the subject. Mech also tries to describe the almost overwhelming emotion of making contact with the pack.

Mech has a scientist's style. His first priority is to make the text totally truthful, and his second is to make it clear and readable. He does very well on both points.

This scientific approach has a drawback: it's very difficult to write a 'hard' scientific book that still has the spark of delight in it. Like most people, Mech doesn't really have the knack. The main let-down is the way Mech sometimes explains the hard facts, gives a tiny, tantalising glimpse of the wolves' nature or personalities - and then changes the subject. I got the impression that he was leaving out some of the most fascinating insights, maybe because he couldn't back them up scientifically.

Still, it's a first-class introduction to the Arctic wolf. I recommend it.

And by the way, the photography is great. And Arctic wolf pups are very, very cute.

Because they avoid humans, it's very hard to observe wolf behavior in the wild. Mech managed to do it at a remote site in the arctic. Some of his observations confirm the conventional wisdom, others do not. This makes his book a must for those interested in real wolves as opposed to mythologized wolves or the semi-domesticated wolves in wolf parks. The book is also full of gorgeous, full-color pictures.
