“American Wolf” takes you into the lives of Yellowstone’s wolves from the view point of one of the most “tenacious” wolf watchers, Rick McIntyre. McIntyre learns through observing O-Six and her family just how similar these iconic predators are to our domesticated dogs. Blakeslee introduces the reader to the conflicts between ranchers, trophy hunters and conservationists presenting the history of Yellowstone National Park’s wolves. “A never-ending battle between man and wolf.” ~Rachel Tilseth, founder of Wolves of Douglas County Wisconsin.
