review 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 states by the s 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 of on. 35 starsI ve always been a wolf fan They are majestic animals and not just because I love reading the porny books featuring wolf shifters Back in the day my now ex husband and I heard about a man that bred hybrid wolves We were interested and that s way before any legal aspects were really talked about I knowI m old as crapWe visited the man and we immediately fell in love with one of the pups He was a shy little guy but the owner would not just let us take him We had to meet with him several times before we could take the animal I never really knew the animals wolf percentage but at the time I was young and stupid enough to think it would all be okay I know his mom was an Alaskan Malamute but I knew that there was definitely wolf blood in the pup We named him Diablo and he really did become a member of our family My kids face is blurred on purpose even though this pic is over 20 years oldbecause trolls Diablo was a pup in this photoNow I m going to admit I loved that animal He was extremely protective of my family Would I do it again Not on your life Now as I m older I know that wild animals should be wild and not bred with domestic animals I love and appreciate them but we went through hell with him just being a mixed breed Not because of the animal My neighbors hated him Not dislike HATE If he left our property as animals will tend to do people freaked out Diablo was shot by my neighbor while he was standing in my yard While we were outside with him Was he doing anything No that didn t matter though He was hit by a car onceon purpose We went to court about him twice Finally he was found poisoned when we returned home one day I still miss himIf he had been an alpha male we probably would have had some trouble I know this so don t troll me and tell me how stupid we were Like you ve never been stupid Anyways this book tells about wolves being reintroduced into Yellowstone Park It does try and tell both sides of the story From the hunterfarmer side to the wolf enthusiast It is obvious that the author is pro wolf though As am I He follows the story of one of the most famous wolves called O six She is an alpha female and it follows her from the time she meets her mate until she is killed I m not going to describe her life because I think you should read this book I do know that it sucks that wolves have such short life spans Not just because natural events happen that lessons their chances of survival but that people hate what they really don t understand or can controlI will admit that when this wolf dies in the book I spent a good thirty minutes cryingand I hardly ever cry I felt gut punched when I read that her mate cried over her bodyStop this stupid people Go read up on all the good things that happen when you have natural predators in an ecosystem Booksource I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for review

American Wolf

E of these wolves O Six a charismatic alpha female named for the year of her birth Uncommonly powerful with gray fur and faint black ovals around each eye O Six is a kind and merciful leader a fiercely intelligent fighter and a doting mother She is beloved by wolf watchers particularly renowned naturalist Rick McIntyre and becomes something of a social media star with followers around the worldBut as she raises her pups and protects her pack O Six is challenged on all fronts by hunters who compete with wol. 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 have a great impact on a person s life I love that about this story on top of just being thoroughly entertained by the story of the wolves and learning about them I d highly recommend this if you re looking for a microhistory that will probably be unlike anything you ve ever read before

Nate Blakeslee ¹ 8 summary

Ves 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. I have an undying love for Yellowstone National Park I visited it 36 years ago 1984 My memories of what I saw and experienced are still fresh Saw so many animal and ecological sights No wolves though Wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone in 1995 this gave biologists a uniue opportunity to study what happens when a top predator returns to an ecosystem They were brought in to manage the rising elk population which had been overgrazing much of the parkThis book studies the wolf and how it interacts with its environment and other wolves It also chronicles the fight to keep wolves safe from human predatorsI was surprised to find out that there are wolf watchers at Yellowstone and the watchers give the wolves names The watchers also impart human characteristics to the wolves I especially enjoyed following the story of O Six born in 2006 a hunter a mother an outstanding alpha femaleI love non fiction written like a novel and this book is an excellent example5 stars
