Auteur: Douglas W. Smith & Gary Ferguson
In DECADE OF THE WOLF, project leader Douglas W. Smith and acclaimed nature writer Gary Ferguson describe the journey of thirty-one Canadian gray wolves that were released in 1995 and 1996 into Yellowstone National Park and the people who faith-fully followed them.
With recently updated poignant details about the lives of these animals, including moving stories about survival and family dynamics, DECADE OF THE WOLF serves to mark the end of the opening act of this inspired, often tumultuous tale of preservation. The wolves have not only survived but completely changed the ecosystem, spilling a fresh measure of wildness across the world's first national park.
Biologist DOUGLAS W. SMITH, PHD, is head of the Yellowstone Wolf Recovery Project and has worked on this reintroduction since its inception. He lives in Gardiner, Montana.
