Grizzly bears, black bears, wolves, coyotes, cougars/ mountain lions,bobcats, wolverines, lynx, foxes, fishers and martens are the suite of carnivores that originally inhabited North America after the Pleistocene extinctions. This site invites research, commentary, point/counterpoint on that suite of native animals (predator and prey) that inhabited The Americas circa 1500-at the initial point of European exploration and subsequent colonization. Landscape ecology, journal accounts of explorers and frontiersmen, genetic evaluations of museum animals, peer reviewed 20th and 21st century research on various aspects of our "Wild America" as well as subjective commentary from expert and layman alike. All of the above being revealed and discussed with the underlying goal of one day seeing our Continent rewilded.....Where big enough swaths of open space exist with connective corridors to other large forest, meadow, mountain, valley, prairie, desert and chaparral wildlands.....Thereby enabling all of our historic fauna, including man, to live in a sustainable and healthy environment. - Blogger Rick

Another reminder that our friend, Dr. Cristina Eisenberg, has her new book THE CARNIVORE WAY available for sale through, Island Press, Amazon and Barnes & Noble.......... "An eminently readable primer on predator ecology"...........I have heard many great comments from friends who have read her book..........You will come away informed, enlightened and impressed with Cristina's command of the topic and her highly engaging prose.............Pick up a copy today!

 Dear Friends and Colleagues,

As many of you know, I've spent the past two years working on a new book, which discusses carnivore ecology across western North America. I'm excited to tell you it is now available! In The Carnivore Way: Coexisting With and Conserving North America's Predators (9781597269827/$30);

I look at six species: grizzly bear, wolf, wolverine, lynx, cougar, and jaguar. For each animal, I explore its life cycle and what we know about its effects on the ecosystems in which it lives, examine the threats it is currently facing and will face in the future, and offer stories from my own and others' work studying it in the field.

You can get a print copy from Island Press, using the code THEWAY, which is good for a 20% discount. You can also order it from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or your local bookstore.

I've been heartened by the responses the book has received, including a pre-publication review that called it "an eminently readable primer on predator ecology" and reviews in Nature, Conservation, The Scientist and by The Nature Conservancy ( ).

I will be speaking about the book over the next few months so I hope we'll get to talk about it soon.

I'm also excited to tell you I've launched a new website at where you can find details about all my writing, travels, and where I'll be speaking. Let me know what you think.

Even better, this week ONLY, through Sunday, my publisher Island Press is offering their entire selection of over 600 e-books including both of my books The Carnivore Way and The Wolf's Tooth at a discounted price of $7.99.

I hope you'll consider supporting the new book by sharing it with your own networks via email, social media or reviewing it on Amazon or Goodreads. If you're interested in press copies, bulk discounts, or course information, let me know.

If you have any questions or ideas for how to use The Carnivore Way in your own work, please don't hesitate to get in touch. I hope you enjoy the book and thank you for your support and feedback.

All best,
