9780300119725: Vicious: Wolves and Men in America (The Lamar Series in Western History)

Why did Americans hate wolves for centuries? And, given the ferocity of this loathing, why are Americans now so protective of the animals? In this provocative history of wolves in America—and of the humans who have hated and loved them—Jon Coleman investigates the sometimes violent and always controversial relationship between the two species.
"With lively prose and copious detail (Coleman) deftly weaves together the histories of settler and lupine societies. . . . Provocative, scholarly, scholarly, and readable."—Karen R. Jones, Journal of American History
"Thoughtfully conceived, insightful, and well written, Vicious is a wicked good read."—Andrew Kirk, Montana: The Magazine of Western History

From the Inside Flap:

"This is a bold, smart, and original book, written with verve and imagination. Far more than a history of wolves in America, it is a meditation on the meanings of time, history, and culture, and an inquiry into the nature of cruelty and hatred."--Andrew Cayton, Distinguished Professor of History, Miami University

"A fascinating book which draws on historical, biological and cultural insights in a penetrating analysis of how Americans have interacted with a major predator. Coleman’s approach allows us to understand fully why we eliminated wolves from the United States, and why recent debates over wolf reintroduction have been so heated."--Robert Keiter, author of Keeping Faith with Nature and The Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (also Wallace Stegner Professor of Law and director of the Wallace Stegner Center for Land, Resources and the Environment at the University of Utah)

"A fabulous book. Coleman is a witty, incisive writer who has unearthed a new history for American’s hate-love relationship with wolves. This is a work of exceptional ambition at the cutting edge of environmental history."--Louis Warren, author of Hunter’s Game, and W. Turrentine Jackson Professor of Western U.S. History, Univ. of California, Davis

"This is a remarkably well-written, provocative and insightful work of history on a timely and important topic."--Alan Taylor, University of California at Davis
