The Return of the Wolf to Yellowstone
A New York Times Notable Book
The inside account of the environmental story of the decade Early in this century, U.S. government agents trapped, poisoned, or shot every wolf they could track down in and around Yellowstone National Park. By 1926, not one wolf was left alive. After generations of struggle between the wolf's friends and foes, the wolf was returned to Yellowstone in January of 1995. Thomas McNamee chronicles the drama of the reintroduction, the political machinations behind it, and the harrowing details of the wolves' own lives. In his telling, it is easy to see why this saga has stirred the imagination of a nation.

Review: The Return of the Wolf to YellowstoneUser Review - Nicole - Goodreads
3.5/5 stars. I liked the story more than the writing style. He captures what happened and the people involved in a way that makes everything relative and enjoyable but his prose is a little obnoxious. 5/5 stars for the true story and people involved. 2/5 stars for the writing. Read full review

Reads like a who done it, the 1995 reinstating of wolves from Alberta in spite of dissent from farmers, ranchers, some conservationists, etc. with all the personalities of biologists and politicians and advocates, plus the cast of wolves. Read full review
