Commemorating the twentieth anniversary of the reintroduction of wolves to the American West, Howl follows Susan Imhoff Bird's exploration into the passions and controversies surrounding nature's most fascinating predator. At a crossroads in her own life, Bird travels around the West, talking with wolf watchers, landowners, wildlife managers, conservationists, and hunters about their understandings of what matters most, which almost always is their connection with the natural world. However, the often-conflicting issues raised by hunters, ranchers, and politicians prompt Bird's personal examination of wolf science, myths, and ethics, culminating in her conviction that wolves must be allowed to recover and thrive on our lands. Along the way, Bird begins to unleash her own wild nature, learning to howl and inviting us to do the same.… (més)

This review was written for LibraryThing Member Giveaways.
HOWL begins unexpectedly on a big mountain where one reader thought a metal cylinder would be for collecting.

Susan Bird's introduction, for many readers, to Torrey House Press, "Conservation Through Literature," will bring new dimensions to nature listening in unusual ways. Too many wolves? Simply gently and carefully trap and relocate.

Her book inspires thinking and taking action way outside of Wolf Parks > if scientists can send us to the moon and way out past Pluto,
they long ago could have perfected Vegetarian 'meats" to rival the best gourmet and any old carnivore tastes.
When this finally happens, there will be no need for cattle raising or ranches.

There will be none of this senseless crazy collision between man and wolf.

In the meantime, the author creates a complex interweaving of Journey Yellow Eyes OR7 with animal and environmental history, proven scientific facts, on site observations and her own life history and current events. Wolves, yes, but also time to listen to the Call of the Elk.

Most important, she further inspires readers to examine and to change both attitudes and policies within their own home states:
Wisconsin Kills Wolves and Baits and Murders Bears.

No one here is starving for their meat, nor are their skins needed for clothing or shelter.

It is time to develop a true wilderness in Wisconsin. We need our own HOWL story and history if we will ever be open to compassionate change: Protect, Do Not Kill. We can create safe corridors connecting all the green spaces and along rural roads where there is now only deep cutting of all habitat for wildflowers, plants, birds, and small animals. We also can set up safe migration routes for butterflies, bees, birds and wildlife threatened by GMO crop planting and humans.

Ms. Bird is very convincing with facts and empathy for wolves; the personal feels off at times. We for sure get, over and over, that she needs all this alone wildness, inside and out, to be complete, but who cared for her kids during these many excursions is not clear. And why would anyone take a mini cooper or any vehicle that wasn't a strong 4 wheel drive into a blizzard covered Montana highway, notably when there was no emergency. The scary drives felt contrived.

And Daniel - we don't get much of his true story - maybe he just didn't want to turn himself and his wife into Sally and Ted Forth?

Less of the countless flesh eating descriptions, bacon (talk about intelligent animals!), the cruel pate, and, yes, the bison "feels something;"
otherwise even recent scientific evidence tells us it would have long moved on, non?

Photographs or drawings and maps of Yellowstone would be welcome in the future editions which hopefully will become required reading in every state, plus Canada and Mexico. ( )
