Synopsis of The Ninemile Wolves: An Essay:

In the Spring of 1989, a black wolf from Canada gave birth to a litter of pups near the town of Marion, Montana. By that fall she had become the focus of political in-fighting, editorials and biologists’ studies; an object of hatred, affection, myth, fear and pity

Bass writes an inspired essay advocating wolf reintroduction, which he sets in the context of the fate of a small group of wolves in Montana. Not so much scientific tract as it is one man’s vigorous inquiry into the proper relationship between man and nature, the author’s issue is a moral one.
