Publisher's Summary

Carter Niemeyer has followed wolves - and captured many - since he helped reintroduce them in the Northern Rockies in the mid-1990s. In his second memoir, Wolf Land, he takes us across the rugged West as he tracks wolves, shares in their lives, and seeks middle ground for these iconic animals, both on the land and in our hearts.

A legacy to wolves

Wolf Land carries on from Wolfer, and while there is some crossover between the two, Wolf Land covers Niemeyer’s later years of the reintroduction program and the time he’s dedicated to their revival after his retirement. This was a much more relaxed read compared to Wolfer as the opposing sides of reintroduction aren’t delved into as heavily as they are in Wolfer, which is where the primary foundation of the emotional conflict is laid out.

Wolf Land celebrates the beauty and resilience of wolves and the nurturing habits of pack dynamics - which are much alike to us humans. Niemeyer’s admiration and appreciation for the species is undoubtedly clear as he continues to advocate for wolves and draws lines of how humans can and *should* take more accountability to protect public lands for both natural predators and human use.

Niemeyer’s dedication to wolves and his contributions to ecology has and will continue to make positive impacts for years to come. The Yellowstone basin and our wild spaces have been positively impacted and will forever be changed due to the work of him and his team. This is a great and fantastic read for anyone interested in our natural landscape and wolves place within it.

The interview portion at the end of this audible presentation was a great surprise. I enjoyed the narrator and Carter holding the conversation to end such a great book.

Brilliant

I probably cannot express how much I loved this audiobook that is so brilliantly written and funny and riveting and informative. I didn't want it to end, and the narration is superb. I've listened to a lot of audiobooks and this might be the best narrated, probably inspired by such wonderful writing on a wonderful topic. All I can say about this book is it's wonderful, and I learned a lot about wolves.

Several chapters I listened to twice because they are so enjoyable. If you're near-obsessed with wolves like I am or just have a passing interest, this is the book for you. -mandy
