Summary
A narrative of a year on a southwest Montana ranch describes the author's time building fences, riding, roping, and caring for cattle while confronting a brutal pack of wolves in ways that challenged his views about conservation
Summary
In this gripping memoir of a young man, a wolf, their parallel lives and ultimate collision, Bryce Andrews describes life on the remote, windswept Sun Ranch in southwest Montana. The Sun's twenty thousand acres of rangeland occupy a still-wild corner of southwest Montana-a high valley surrounded by mountain ranges and steep creeks with portentous names like Grizzly, Dead Man, and Bad Luck. Just over the border from Yellowstone National Park, the Sun holds giant herds of cattle and elk amid many predators-bears, mountain lions, and wolves
