Publisher's Summary

In the tradition of Peter Matthiessen's Wildlife in America or Aldo Leopold, Brenda Peterson tells the 300-year history of wild wolves in America. It is also our own history, seen through our relationship with wolves. The earliest Americans revered them. Settlers zealously exterminated them. 

Now, scientists, writers, and ordinary citizens are fighting to bring them back to the wild. Peterson, an eloquent voice in the battle for 20 years, makes the powerful case that without wolves, not only will our whole ecology unravel, but we'll lose much of our national soul.

Wolf stories to be treasured for generations

I love wolves and in this book it covers all to be appreciated about this species. The author is truly gifted in articulating recent stories of wolves around the United States and depicts the importance of keeping this keystone species protected. Amazing work!

Biased

Very biased on the side of wolf advocates. Gets a little more objective towards end. I’ve found the book Beyond Wolves: The Politics of Wolf Recovery and Management much more objective and holistic.

I Could not finish this book

I’m heartbroken with our past and continuing treatment of this beautiful, well adapted predator, who serves an important role in the environmental balance in the United States wilderness.
I listened to the point where Alaska was opening up the hunting and killing (slaughtering) of wolves from the air. I had to stop at that point, I just couldn’t listen to any more. At some time I will go back and finish this great and necessary book.

As someone who Grew up in California with the back drop of a majestic mountain range, I hiked the high Sierra, Yosemite and Kings Canyon regions. I stand in ahh of the beauty and respect Mother Nature.
