In the nonfiction book American Wolf: A True Story of Survival and Obsession in the West, author Nate Blakeslee tells the novelistic story of the rise and reign of O-Six, a charismatic and celebrated Yellowstone alpha female wolf. Uncommonly powerful, O-Six is a kind and merciful leader, a fiercely intelligent fighter, and a doting mother. But as she raises her pups and protects her pack, O-Six is challenged on all fronts - by hunters, cattle ranchers, and other wolves. This book also tells a larger story about the ongoing cultural clash in the West between those fighting for a vanishing way of life and conservationists committed to restoring natural landscape and habitat.
