This thesis attempts to interpret Wolf Totem according to the theory of Ecological Holism advocated by Eugene Odem and the ecological criticism ideas summarized by Wang Nuo to prove that Wolf Totem reveals such ecological holism thoughts as:1. Respect for nature; 2. Nature is a whole in which all species are interrelated; 3. Respect for the nature of all species; 4. Look at everything from the perspective of overall ecological benefits, and thus calls for action to respect and protect both nature and the nature of all species in it.
