Before I picked up this book, I didn't give a rats A** about wolves. I had heard about the Yellowstone reintroduction program, but I'm no animal lover so I didn't really think a book about wolves would be all that interesting. But I saw this book on an awards list so I picked it up. Fast forward to me closing the book, tears in my eyes, and with a new favorite animal. This is a well-written book and I promise it will move you. Honestly, I don't even like dogs, but this book blew me away. But this is about more than wolves, though the wolves are amazing, it is about the environment and politics and human/animal nature. I had no idea. One of my favorite reads this year.
