This book has beautiful pictures backed up with information about the ecosystem in the Yellowstone national park. This book explains what function wolves play in the park while not being overly complicated.

This book is a great example of the effects humans have on the natural world, and the animals- wolfs in this instance, that live in said world. I think this is a wonderfully written book and provider reads with a story that needs to be told without the necessary amount of preachy environmentalism that often exists in these types of books. I would use these book in units on wolves, and/or deforestation. ( )

This Is an informational book about the effect of the removal of wolves from Yellowstone park. There also is a part in the book about when the wolves come back and what happen. I would use this book in a science environment to show why we keep stabilized populations. I think it is important to tie reading into different subjects and this is definitely a book you could with science. ( )

This book has stunning pictures, that in and of itself might get it five stars, but then it presents its facts on why wolves are needed in Yellowstone line upon line, precept on precept. It spoon feeds the science behind the proof in easy to understand words and keeps one concept to a page. This is perfect for a first grader to read and understand, heck I would have appreciated it in Bio 101, especially as it gives you websites to more information at the back. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802796869, Hardcover)

Yellowstone National Park’s majestic geologic wonders and remarkable wildlife draw millions of visitors each year. But there was a time when these natural treasures were in great danger, all because after years of unrestricted hunting, one key piece of the puzzle had been eliminated—the wolf.

Now, more than a decade after scientists realized the wolves’ essential role and returned them to Yellowstone, the park’s natural balance is gradually being restored.  The informative dual-level text and spectacular full-color photographs show the wolves in the natural habitat that was almost lost without them.  Readers of all ages will be inspired by the delicate natural system that is Yellowstone.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:49:48 -0400)

When wolves were eliminated from Yellowstone National Park the natural system was out of balance. Shows the return of the wolves to the park and the natural balance being restored.
