Books About Wolves

Gray Wolves

Would wolves ever live in Yellowstone National Park again? The animals had once roamed freely there for thousands of years. Yet by 1926, hunters and ranchers had killed the entire population. The situation seemed hopeless. In 1995, however, scientists had a plan that could change the course of the animal's history.

When the Wolves Returned

Yellowstone National Park's majestic geologic wonders and remarkable wildlife draw millions of visitors each year. But there was a time when these natural treasures were in great danger, all because after years of unrestricted hunting, one key piece of the puzzle had been eliminated--the wolf. Now, more than a decade after scientists realized the wolves' essential role and returned them to Yellowstone, the park's natural balance is gradually being restored.
