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.P> Suspenseful and often poetic....McNamee puts us into the scientists' spotter planes and behind their binoculars during the wolves' critical first spring in Yellowstone. -- Los Angeles TimesAn informed account of the reconstitution of wolf packs, by a writer who can sympathize with lovers and haters of wolves. -- The New York Times Book Review
