Howl: The Secret Language of Wolves

Jeff T Reed, PhD

Dr Jeff Reed, raised in Paradise Valley Montana, is the principal investigator for the Cry Wolf Project - a bioacoustic study of wolves. He has degrees in anthropology, linguistics, religion and ancient history. With three decades in the computer technology industry, he now runs a next-gen camera trap company. Active in the Greater Yellowstone's conservation, Jeff's true passion is animal communication, from elk bugles and chickadee alarms to the language of wolves and dogs. You can buy his recordings at www.fivetoedwolf.com or his art at The Languages of Life online store. All proceeds go to biodiversity conservation via The American Canid project.

Web Companion to the Book

Howl: The Secret Language of Wolves is a book about how wolves communicate with sound. The best way to learn any new language is to hear it and see it in action. Readers of the book will be able to see spectrograms (a visual way of representing sound) of wolves communicating, but not be able to hear them. Listeners of the audio version of the book will be able to hear the actual sounds, but not see the spectrograms or images of wolves. To help both, this web companion includes audio, spectrograms, images and video which are referenced in the book.
