Resource Description
THE NEW WOLVES: The Return of the Mexican Wolf to the American Southwest. Bass. This story comes from the heart and from the mind. Author Rick Bass states that “My family and I would see them hanging vertical from the corner post of the barbed-wire fence very Sunday, on our way to church, the freshly trapped red wolves…. Gradually, through the years, the sightings … grew rarer and rarer, until finally we stopped looking for them, understanding that there were no more; and then the rangeland itself vanished, making way for a strip mall, a gas station, a florist’s shop, and a James’ Coney Island.” So begins The New Wolves, which Jim Harrison, author of Legends of the Fall deems “an enthralling and brilliant book on the reintroduction of wolves in the American Southwest.” In this concise volume of lucid yet lyrical prose, Rick Bass covers a territory as vast as that formerly occupied by the wolves he describes—from the reasons for their disappearance to the methods for, and challenges that accompany, their repopulation. Publisher's Weekly writes of this book as “A lyrical narrative along the boundaries of nature essay, character portraiture and eco-philosophy…. Bass mines the layers of political, social, economic, cultural and ethical relevance with a unique poetic voice, and, in the end, it is the wolves who most vigorously capture his imagination and fascination. This is a ballad of a book, a hymn to the gloriously defiant power of survival..." A wonderful tribute to a species that is still living on the brink. Publisher's price is $14.95. Your Price = $7.48. #SPC-71. Note: This book is new, but publisher has marked book as overstock with a single yellow line across bottom of book.
