American Wolf takes its place in a long lineage of wolf books. . . . [T]here are cherished, striking images here . . . testament to the ever-flowing life force that is the wolf. Rick Bass, New York Times Book Review
Beautiful, detailed . . . [American Wolf] centers on the rise, reign, and family life of O-Six, matriarch of the Lamar Canyon pack and so well-known to park visitors that the New York Times gave her an obituary. Publisher’s Weekly (starred review)
The fight . . . [over] Yellowstone’s wolves is embodied in O-Six’s story, told with great immediacy and empathy in a tale that reads like fiction. This one will grab readers and impel them into the heart of the conflict.” Booklist (starred review)
