A NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW EDITORS' CHOICE The enthralling story of the rise and reign of O-Six, the celebrated Yellowstone wolf, and the people who loved or feared her Before men ruled the earth, there were wolves. Once abundant in North America, these majestic creatures were hunted to near extinction in the lower 48 states by the 1920s. But in recent decades, conservationists have brought wolves back to the Rockies, igniting a battle over the very soul of the West. With novelistic detail, Nate Blakeslee tells the gripping story of one of these wolves, O-Six, a charismatic alpha female named for the year of her birth. Uncommonly powerful, with gray fur and faint black ovals around each eye, O-Six is a kind and merciful leader, a fiercely intelligent fighter, and a doting mother. She is beloved by wolf watchers, particularly renowned naturalist Rick McIntyre, and becomes something of a social media star, with followers around the world. But as she raises her pups and protects her pack, O-Six is challenged on all fronts: by hunters, who compete with wolves for the elk they both prize; by cattle ranchers who are losing livestock and have the ear of politicians; and by other Yellowstone wolves who are vying for control of the park’s stunningly beautiful Lamar Valley. These forces collide in American Wolf, a riveting multigenerational saga of hardship and triumph that tells a larger story about the ongoing cultural clash in the West—between those fighting for a vanishing way of life and those committed to restoring one of the country’s most iconic landscapes.

After competing in The Cheyenne Days celebration, Leland Martin Rich, known as “Wyoming Jack,” and his four brothers accept a job driving a herd of cattle 115 miles from the small Wyoming town of Deaver to Thermopolis, Wyoming. Their adventures begin when the local sheriff informs them that two of his wranglers are convicted felons. Jack agrees to keep a sharp rein on them, but this is only the first of many challenges on this danger-filled cattle drive. At Lobo Pass, they hear the first wolf cry. A dying calf was killed to use as bait to lure in wolves. Just like clockwork, the pack settles in on the calf while two older wolves creep toward the dark side of the herd. Once the shooting starts, one of the crooks is thrown from his horse and is killed by a wolf. In less than the time it took for the plan to start, it was over. Nine wolves lay dead, but one of their men has also been killed. The cattle drive encounters a wild mustang stampede, an early spring blizzard, a cougar attack, a saloon girl who attacks with a knife, and much more.

This is a biography of Wilson Alwyn Bentley, the farmer from Jericho, Vermont, who took over five thousand photomicrographs of ice, dew, frost, and -- especially -- snow crystals. Although his photographs were taken between 1885 and 1931, they have never been equalled and are in great demand today. Bentley's story is one of courage and persistence against tremendous odds. He taught himself how to photograph snow crystals through a microscope while still in his teens and then pursued his obsession for years before having the beauty and scientific value of his work recognised by others. 'The Snowflake Man' lays open the life of a simple, self-educated, sensitive man who pursued natural beauty with microscope and camera for nearly fifty years. The book contains 30 black and white photographs.

The political maneuvering and intense controversy that has defined wolves’ recovery in the West makes this a compelling and timely read.
