520 "The enthralling story of the rise and reign of O-Six, the
celebrated Yellowstone wolf, and the people who loved or
feared her. Before men 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 West. With novelistic detail, Nate
Blakeslee tells the gripping story of one 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 world.
But as she raises her pups and protects her pack, O-Six is
challenged on all fronts: by hunters, who compete with
wolves 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 Valley. These forces
collide in American Wolf, a riveting multigenerational
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
