Simon Gervais pens such complex characters...each and everyone grows with the next book. The store line was wonderful and a bit chilling, in the what if. This book is amazing and I can’t believe I have to wait for the next one. Thank You, Simon for Wonderful story and Adam Hanin for and excellent narration.

So you know how you really really want to hate someone! Or blame them! Say it ms there fault! I can honestly say this was truly a great book. I have much to Contemplate and I really can’t dislike this man. He was put in an awful position and did what he thought was best whether I agree or disagre. He life story is honestly fascinating and I believe he’s a good man.

Professor Theo Cray is trained to see patterns where others see chaos. So when mutilated bodies found deep in the Montana woods leave the cops searching blindly for clues, Theo sees something they missed. Something unnatural. Something only he can stop. As a computational biologist, Theo is more familiar with digital code and microbes than the dark arts of forensic sleuthing. But a field trip to Montana suddenly lands him in the middle of an investigation into the bloody killing of one of his former students.

Completely had me hooked! I’ve spent years traveling for my jobs. This gave me pause to think. How would it do others see me? I think I’m a very confident person but.... can’t wait for book two. Okay with years traveling I’ve also spent years listening and at times this book made my skin crawl as well... when you get that feeling pay attention! It’s there for a reason. Creepy good till the very end!

Before men ruled the earth, there were wolves. Once abundant in North America, these majestic creatures were hunted to near extinction in the lower 48 states by the 1920s. But in recent decades, conservationists have brought wolves back to the Rockies, igniting a battle over the very soul of the West. With novelistic detail, Nate Blakeslee tells the gripping story of one of these wolves, O-Six, a charismatic alpha female named for the year of her birth.

A wonderful story. Not just a story of Wolves but of the lives they touch. The watchers, ranchers and hunters. Lessons all around. Listen with an open mind and no matter what side you set on you will come away with a greater knowledge of the issue. Wildlife Management is complicated like most things in life. We as humans seem to believe we know more than Mother Nature isn’t that laughable. For me my lesson was having grown up on a Ranch is it really hunting when one kills a Wolf who has spent its entire life on display for the tens of thousands of visitors to Yellowstone? I find that hard to justify. One day the wolf sees a group with scopes watching them live there lives with no worries then the next day that scope has a rifle attached. Different kind of scopes but same idea. I went int listening with not much of an opinion, knowing the outcome and was truly crying. And that’s not an easy thing. For me i think now the story turns to the Grizzlies of Greater Yellowstone and a bit of self reflection. With out hesitation I can say that this book changed my view and there must be a buffer zone to protect those animals who have no reason to fear you and me. Great book and it will be shared with a fellow rancher and a wolf loving friend.

Funny, scary, and touching true stories from Yellowstone wildlife photographers, rangers, guides, and trackers who've accidentally come face-to-face with grizzly bears and bison, who've camped out in -70 degree temperatures, and much more. From a Wall Street Journal best-selling author and wildlife photographer whose award-wining Yellowstone imagery is displayed in the Smithsonian.

In 2016 I visited Yellowstone and the Tetons for the second time. The second time was a life altering experience. Since then I have search tireless for more information on the area. The animals, the environment, the habitat, and all the that we humans do that effect the lives of the animals who live there. Generally we are the cause of there stress. Listening to theses stories makes me realize how much responsibility we have to keep them safe. Listen and learn personal space is important to all.What wonderful story tellers Sandy and Carolyn truly are. This is truly a treasure. Thank you so much for sharing. I will be gifting copies of this for the holidays. Love love love love this!
