The breathtaking firsthand account of two Yellowstone wolves and their remarkable bond.
Wolf 21 and Wolf 42 were attracted to each other the moment they met in Yellowstone Park—but Wolf 42’s jealous sister hindered their relationship. After an explosive insurrection within the pack, the two wolves came together at last as alpha male and alpha female of the Druids, the most successful wolf pack in Yellowstone history. Rick McIntyre recounts their fascinating love story with compassion and a keen eye for detail, drawing on his many years of experience observing Yellowstone wolves in the wild. This remarkable work of science writing offers unparalleled insight into wolf behavior and Yellowstone’s famed wolf reintroduction project.
Rick McIntyre has spent more than fifty years watching wolves in America’s national parks, twenty-five of those years in Yellowstone, where he has accumulated over 100,000 wolf sightings and educated the public about the park’s most famous wolves. He has spoken about the Yellowstone wolves with 60 Minutes, NPR, and CBC, and he is profiled extensively in Nate Blakeslee’s American Wolf and in international publications. He lives in Silver Gate, Montana.
