American Wolf, A True Story of Survival and Obsession in the West

Nate Blakeslee
Natural History

Praised by the likes of Margaret Atwood, Bill McKibben, and Erik Larson, this account of the wolves of the Lamar Valley in Yellowstone reads like a multi-generational novel. Centered on a single female wolf (called "O-6") the environmental drama unfolds as Yellowstone's wolf population rises, packs battle one-another for territory, and ecologists struggle with the pervasive myth of wolf terror and mythology. Larson calls it "a startlingly intimate portrait of the intricate, loving, human-like interrelationships that govern wolves in the wild."
