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

The Film Society and Minnesota 

Made Presents ‘Medicine of the

 Wolf’ at the Minneapolis 

Convention Center,

 September 10, 2015

The following is what Dr. Jane Goodall has to
 say about the film ‘Medicine of the Wolf’
“The sound of wolves howling under the stars
 is for me one of the most haunting and beautiful
 of nature’s voices. Native Americans
D. Jane Goodall
D. Jane Goodall
revered wolves for their wildness, courage, 
and loyalty.   Today science respects them 
for the important role they play in 
maintaining a healthy ecosystem. And
 countless numbers of the general public
 are fascinated by them.  

 Yet the myth of
 fierce and dangerous beasts, handed down
 from early white settlers, informs much of 
the  horrific and unjustified cruelty and 
persecution that wolves faces today. 
Medicine of the Wolf  explores the facts. 
 It is powerful, informative and moving, 
and as I watched I was first enchanted 
 and then enraged. I urge you to watch 
this compelling and courageous film
 and tell everyone you know to watch
 it as well.  Thank you, Julia Huffman for
 making it.”  Review by Dr. Jane Goodall
