The Ninemile Wolvesby Rick Bass
Defiant and opionated, Rick Bass has written an inspired essay advocating wolf reintroduction and recolonization, in the context of one, small pack's fate. An environmental issue for all, philosophical for some and yet moral for Bass, the wolf and its return have polarized the whole of the Westigniting the passions of both cattle ranchers and environmentalists, wildlife biologists and hunters. The result of years of personal study and scores of interviews with people both for and against the wolf's return to the Northern Rockies, THE NINEMILE WOLVES is not so much a scientific study as one man's' vigorous, emotional inquiry into the proper relationship between man and nature.

Indeed an intriguing book. If you want to know about reintroduction of wolves into Montana and other parts of the United States, then this is a must read! Rick Bass is very opinionated, yet his writing is incisive and hits straight to the point of issues that may seem somewhat mundane, but are really of utmost importance to have any form of environmental movement in the United States.
