American Wolf

ASIN moved from this editionThe enthralling story of the rise and reign of O Six the celebrated Yellowstone wolf and the people who loved or feared her Before humans 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 WestWith novelistic detail Nate Blakeslee tells the gripping story o this is my nonfiction book for the month chosen because i like wolves but sean of the house LOVES wolves and i was going to give this to him when i finished but i m afraid it would break his sensitive irish heartaccording to this book wolves have a life expectancy of about five years in the wild and this book chronicles several generations of wolves living in yellowstone so you do the math there this book was pulled together from the well detailed accounts of the wolf watchers in yellowstone individuals who devoted their lives to observing these magnificent beasts every day coming to know their behaviors and personalities monitoring their struggles for dominance within their packs their clashes with other packs and witnessing births and deaths in an ever changing pack dynamicas i said i like wolves but in a casual oh how lovely they are way without being any kind of wolf scholar or anything so i learned a lot from this book i didn t know that wolves had been eliminated from yellowstone and most of the US in the 20 s in order to protect the park s delicious elk deer moose etc and were only reintroduced in 1995 when wolves imported from canada were allowed to return to an ecosystem that had actually been negatively impacted by their removal in the first place what followed was a wolf explosion that did indeed restore the natural balance but also caused outrage in the local humans as idaho montana and wyoming are full of hunters and ranchers long accustomed to viewing wolves as a threat to their livelihood so not only is the book full of the stories of the wolves under the park s protection but also about the inevitable wolf diaspora as packs ranged outside of safety and caused no end of consternation and legislature about what should be done to protect the elk and cattle that humans were planning on killing it s Planet Earth meets Law Order and both situations are fascinating in their own way on the wolf side the star of the book is the alpha female O Six named for the year of her birth who made herself a favorite of yellowstone s many wolf watching groupies by demonstrating phenomenal abilities in hunting prowess strategic evasion admirable leadership ualities and fecundity if you google O Six and yellowstone you get the cliffs notes version of what happened to her but you d miss out on all the stories told in this book about her and her pack and her rivals this is a nature book so there s no shoddy anthropomorphization but it s hard not to fall in love a little bit internet assures me the following are all photos of her and can be found herea superstar of a wolfthe legal track is absolutely bizarre convoluted and counterintuitive it involves the authorization of wolf hunting in the three states surrounding yellowstone idaho montana and wyoming and it turns into a mishmash of state and federal legislature sneaky riders smooshed into unrelated bills science vs politics rulings overturned wolves placed on and off the endangered species list with shifting boundaries and flinging money at the problem in such contradictory ways one federal agency was reintroducing predators on public land a second was leasing adjacent land to ranchers and a third was dispatching trappers or men in helicopters to kill those same predators when they inevitably crossed paths with livestock america is crazytown it kind of hurts my heart a little to think of someone hunting a wolf since there s no feeding my family exemption and it s purely for sport or the protection of livestock which i do understand but cattle are big and dumb and delicious and it s not just wolves who get that there are also bears and coyotes and probably some other beasts determined enough to attack a little one but i will say that of all the wolves who died in this book at least the ones shot by hunters died instantly as opposed to the many who died of injuries sustained in territory disputes with other packs or starved to deathactually scratch that there was one wolf who was illegally shot by a hunter and wandered off to die slowly and his story was the one that hit my heart the worst because he was a collared wolf so his location was known to the biologists working on the wolf restoration project but because they weren t zookeepers after all and didn t intervene in the fates of the wolves he slowly starved to death over the course of eleven days again this is a decision i understand with my brain but it does nothing to soothe my heart it s like that scene in that BBC Africa documentary series where the baby elephant gets turned around in the sand storm and wanders in the opposite direction from the rest of the herd and dies and sir david attenborough just kinda shrugs and says nature amiright instead of swooping in to rotate the calf or at the very least not airing that footage because jeezbut i know i know when it comes to reading aboutwatching animals in the wild it would be irresponsible to go into it thinking it s going to be a disney paradise where animals help each other out and share the territory and no one ever eats anyone or wanders out into the storm bawling piteously nature gets hungry and nature doesn t sharesure sometimes someone forwards you some heartwarming story about a bear that adopts an orphaned raccoon and everyone goes aawwwwww but generally speaking in an environment with limited resources benevolence to those outside of a very short range of community or family is a liability an animal cannot afford wolves are pack animals so loyalties extend somewhat outside of the pure family but even within a pack members submit to their alphas in freuent demonstrative ways and wolves are also highly territorial so when packs cross paths carnage ensues so there are some parts of this book i know will ruin sean of the houses s day but he s a particularly soft touch when it comes to animals and if i could get him over that i m sure he would find this as fascinating and illuminating as i did and be grateful that there are wolves in our country even if they don t get to live as long as we d like them to this is one of my few gripes because they aren t pets the wolves aren t given memorable people names but referred to by collar numbers 754 820 859 or if uncollared distinguishing markings or traits middle gray shy male i am bad at math so i got mixed up sometimes that is what my heart heard him say anywayfull review still in the works but definitely one for to read lists of those who can handle the end results of animals doing what animals do and hunters doing what hunters docome to my blog

Summary American Wolf

Lves for the elk they both prize; by cattle ranchers who are losing livestock and have the ear of politicians; and by other Yellowstone wolves who are vying for control of the park’s stunningly beautiful Lamar ValleyThese forces collide in American Wolf a riveting multi generational saga of hardship and triumph that tells a larger story about the ongoing cultural clash in the West between those fighting for a vanishing way of life and those committed to restoring one of the country’s most iconic landscape The central focus of this book is the reintroduction of wolves into Yellowstone Park and thus the Northern Rockies By the 1920s wolves had for the most part become extinct in the lower 48 states of the US In 1995 Canadian wolves were brought into Yellowstone Park The book follows this reintroduction from the mid 90s to 2015The conflict between conservationists ecologists and environmentalists on one side and hunters ranchers and miners on the other is the primary focus of this book The book is less about the species canis lupis Nor is this a book of nature writing It is about politics and money and competing interests in relation to wolves Much attention is given to Obama s efforts to reach a federal budgetary agreement in 2011 and Senator Jon Tester s rider that reversed US District Judge Donald Molloy s court ruling classifying wolves as one of the endangered species The book flips between court proceedings and political discussions and sections about the wolf packs in the Lamar Valley of Yellowstone Park Wyoming The author himself mentions that to attract readers there has to be a heartfelt tie to some wolf and that names work better than numbersWe hear a bit about Limpy but primarily we follow 0 Six an alpha female named for the year of her birth and granddaughter of wolves 21 and 42 who were the stars of those wolves originally brought in from Canada We follow O Six her mate his brother and three litters I will admit that by the book s end I had indeed become attached to her Of course I was rooting for those who supported the need to keep wolves protected by the Endangered Species Act ESAThis is a book of non fiction but one person goes by the alias Steven Turnbull His name is changed to protect him Yeah he is the bad guy The book concludes with an epilog The author relates of his meeting with man No he still does not regret what he has done I do think the author makes an attempt to be nonjudgmental to express the views of opposing camps in a fair and balanced manner but it is not hard to guess on which side he standsI was looking for a book focused on new research about wolves That they have cognitive abilities and emotions is shown The book sheds light on the dissolution and formation of wolf packs and the status of members within However I cannot say I learned anything new about wolves The phenomenon of trophic cascade is mentioned Classic wolf literature is referencedInformation is too often repeated Why are we told of the rangers vehicle brands the clothes they wore and the euipment used To me this sounded like advertising The audiobook is narrated by Mark Bramhall He does a fine job The information is easy to follow My only uibble would be that when things go bad he sounds sour and whiny but in a masculine way The narration I have given four stars I do not regret reading this book but it was not uite what I was looking for I would have preferred less politics and about wolves

    I was pleasantly surprised by this book It's an incredibly well told story about a pack of wolves particularly focused on the alpha female in Yellowstone National Park But it's also so much than that It's about people who are passionate about something about fighting for what you love about educating others and how all three of these things combine to really make a difference in the world And even if that difference seems small it can ha
