We are excited to announce the publication of Wolf Nation: The Life, Death,
and Return of Wild American Wolves by prolific natural history author Brenda
Merging science, history, and memoir, Wolf Nation tells of the
centuries-long battle to save America's wild wolves. In a narrative
spanning 300 years, Peterson tells what is ultimately a positive and
inspiring tale that begins with zealous extermination by western settlers,
but ends with the successful reintegration of wolves into Yellowstone National Park.
Wolf Nation is an emotionally powerful work that weaves together the stories of specific wolves, and the scientists, ranchers, and activists who are fighting for them.
Peterson has written eighteen books, including Wolf Haven: Sanctuary and theFuture of Wolves in North America. Her work has also appeared in the NewYork Times, Chicago Tribune, San Francisco Chronicle, and she hascontributed commentary on animal and environmental issues to Seattle NPR
stations and for The Huffington Post.
Wolf Nation has received early, enthusiastic praise:

"You will never look at wolves in the same way after reading this
outstanding and compassionate book." – Marc Bekoff, Wild Justice: TheMoral Lives of Animals and The Animal's Agenda
