In 1987, Holaday founded Preserve Arizona's Wolves (P.A.WS.). Now in her 80s, she has been credited with spearheading the citizen movement which led to federal and Arizona state government programs to reintroduce the endangered Mexican gray wolf to areas of the southwestern U.S. In this autobiographical account, she describes her 11-year effort to save this wildlife species and its natural habitat, a process of self-education in which she encountered conflict, opposition, disappointment, and eventual success. Illustrated with color photographs, halftones, and maps. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
