Part of a major obstacle to bringing wolves back to Yellowstone in 1995 was overcoming deeply-engrained  Euro-centric mythology directed toward wolves. Rick McIntyre's book, which draws upon decades of direct wolf observations and other evidence in Yellowstone, makes Wolf 8 a dramatic character with a large ensemble cast. His story isn't fiction;  rather it matches the natural history of wolves with a serious examination of them as sentient beings. Photo courtesy USFWS
