Books

The following lists books about Irish Wolfhounds, containing wolfhounds and associated with their history. By no means is this an exhaustive list. While most categories are self-explanatory, please note that “Irish Wolfhound” contains breed-specific books as well as titles particular to pedigrees, champions and registrations. “Biographies and History” includes biographies of Irish Wolfhound people, histories featuring wolfhounds, as well as some general non-fiction sighthound titles.

Books are listed alphabetically by Author's last name. Some may be out of print, but are sometimes available through used book sales and auctions.
