This controversial study explores the tumultuous relationship and highlights the struggle of wolf packs to retain footholds on ancestral territory in the parks. Compares distinctive lupine histories with anecdotes and narratives of wolves from Aboriginals and early Europeans from the 19th and 20th centuries. Considers changing ideas of nature and wilderness and competing visions of the North American West. Documents the changing tenets of landscape preservation and species protection in preserves in the US and Canada through a capacious study of canine history.
