Shadow Mountain by Renee Askins
Shadow Mountain by Renee Askins Anchor Books 2004 ISBN-9780-385-48226-4
Shadow Mountain is a beautifully written Memoir by Renee Askins. She tells the story of the founding of The Wolf Fund which was dedicated to the re-introduction of wolves into Yellowstone National Park. This book was moving, informative and inspirng. Her dedication to wolves and the biodiversity of Yellowstone National park, combined with the personal and political struggles she overcame to make her dream a reality left me in awe. The writing is amazing, the author is a hero and the story will leave its mark on you for a very long time. Incredible book!
