Detailed reports by wildlife biologists, geographers, legal and policy experts, and conservationists provide a comprehensive look at not only the ecological imperatives, but also the history, legal framework, and public attitudes affecting the future of wolves.


Review By: R.L. Smith,   CHOICE: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries - March 1, 2011

“The reintroduction and spread of wolves in the Yellowstone ecosystem, their restoration in Montana and Idaho, and their recovery in the Great Lakes is stimulating interest in wolf restoration in the southern Rocky Mountains ecosystem. This engaging book provides a comprehensive overview and a detailed assessment of the potential for wolf introduction in the region. This work serves as a solid informational foundation for any possible reintroduction of the wolf into the region. Summing up: Highly Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through professionals; general readers.
