Evocative storytelling and beautiful art present the true story of how reintroducing wolves into Yellowstone Park saved its ecosystem.

When wolves disappeared from Yellowstone Park in the 1930s, the ecosystem started to collapse. Enormous herds of elk swarmed the plains, bears starved, rabbit families shrunk and birds flew away to new homes. Plants vanished, trees withered and rivers meandered.

Until in 1995, wolves were reintroduced to the park and everything began to change for the better. This is the story of their homecoming.

Engaging, fascinating and hopeful, this book shows that human actions can make a difference—because every creature plays a part in the fight against the environmental crisis.

Full-color illustrations.

School Library Journal

Gr 3 Up-Barr's book takes on the dramatic story of the wolf packs in Yellowstone National Park. The book gives a detailed account of how the wolves were killed to near extinction in the park, the repercussions in the ecosystem of the park, how the wolves were reintroduced, and finally how the park benefitted from that. Barr describes the conflict between conservationists and those who live around the park, and includes information on other endangered species around the world that were brought back from extinction by similar reintroduction efforts. The book is brilliantly illustrated with detailed watercolor pictures. Descriptions draw readers into the setting, where they will learn all about the biodiversity of Yellowstone National Park and what scientists have learned about the ecosystem. VERDICT With eye-catching pictures and easy-to-read language, this is a great addition to the shelves.-Dorinda Brown
