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 well written and fascinating read follows individual wolves and various packs from the time of re-introduction to Yellowstone National Park to the present time. Intimate insight into the complex social structure of the wolf pack and individual pack members' personalities. Never a dull moment as the book covers not only the wolves but the advocates, researchers, ranchers, hunters, politics and legal arguments surrounding the growing wolf population.

I love how the concepts of military leadership are then applied to business scenarios. I found the information valuable, easy to follow and presented in a fashion that was easy to digest. Both military and business stories were captivating.
