In forested wilds beyond civilization one special creature has long haunted humanity. The wolf has lurked in our imaginations as the very spirit of wilderness mystique and menace. In 1990, filmmaker Jim Dutchers set out to capture the very first portrait of the hidden private life of a pack of wolves. He was joined by a fellow naturalist, and the two lived with a pack of untamed for six years in the Sawtooth mountains Idaho.
Jim and Jamie Dutcher had begun as friends, but the story of wolves also became a story of two people drawn together by a love for wildlife. Join the Dutchers as they share their extraordinary experiences living with the Sawtooth Wolf Pack. Overcoming forest fires, marauding mountain lions and sub-zero winters, the Dutchers and these elusive, intelligent animals share the heart warming and unique partnership of human and predator.
