Wolf Haven Book Highlights Beauty, Dignity

Posted

The release of the book “Wolf Haven Sanctuary and the Future of Wolves in North America,” by Seattle-based photographer Annie Marie Musselman and essayist Brenda Peterson, is now available.

The two combined their talents to create a stunning coffee table book. Musselman spent several years photographing the wolves living at the Wolf Haven Sanctuary just north of Tenino, while wildlife writer Peterson documented their stories.

Musselman is a fine-art photographer whose work has appeared in the New Yorker and National Geographic. Peterson is a novelist, memoirist, and National Geographic nature writer. She is the author of 18 books including “Your Life Is a Book.”

A Seattle Town Hall will take place starting 7:30 p.m. Oct. 13, during which the photographer and author will share their experiences being around the wolves of Wolf Haven. A panel discussion including Wolf Haven staff will follow.

Wolf Haven International is a nationally recognized sanctuary that has rescued and provided a lifetime home for 200 displaced, captive-born wolves since 1982. Human contact at Wolf Haven is very limited, so photographer Musselman jumped at the rare opportunity to photograph these regal, wild creatures.

This event will serve as the launch party for the book, “Wolf Haven,” published by Sasquatch Books, combining these intimate images with descriptions of the wolves’ lives in and outside the sanctuary.

Books will be available for purchase and signing at the event, and can also be found at a wide variety of locations including Sasquatch Books, Elliott Bay Book Company and Wolf Haven.
