Reviews

"[McIntyre's] greatest strength is the quiet respect and wonder with which he regards his subjects, a quality clearly informed by decades of careful watching."
--Publishers Weekly

"Rick's book [The Rise of Wolf 8] is a goldmine for information on all aspects of wolf behavior and clearly shows they are clever, smart, and emotional beings."
--Psychology Today

"The main attraction of this book, though, is the storytelling about individual wolves, including the powerful origin story of one of Yellowstone's greatest and most famous wolves."
--Washington Post

"Yellowstone's resident wolf guru Rick McIntyre has been many things to many people: an expert tracker for the park's biologists, an indefatigable roadside interpreter for visitors, and an invaluable consultant to countless chronicles of the park's wolves--including my own. But he is first and foremost a storyteller whose encyclopedic knowledge of Yellowstone's wolf reintroduction project--now in its 25th year--is unparalleled."
--Nate Blakeslee, New York Times bestselling author of American Wolf
