Presents, in its ultimate collectible format, Rick Bass' "The Ninemile Wolves". Their story is riveting and profoundly moving: "In 1989, two wolves appeared in a valley in Northwestern Montana, the first known pair to den outside Glacier National Park in 60 years. The rancher let them stay long enough for the pups to mature. A month later, after attacks on dogs and calves (probably by coyotes), the wolves were removed, kept in captivity for several weeks, and then released. One pup escaped, then was captured; the other two died of starvation. The following year, another pair came to Ninemile and produced six pups. Bass, a champion of re-introduction, follows the misfortunes of the young wolves caught in a bureaucratic and political crossfire. He interviewed ranchers, farmers, and wildlife biologists, and accompanied federal agents as they tracked the wolves. For Bass, wolf recovery has become a moral as well as an environmental issue. Here he makes a persuasive case for wolves" (Publishers Weekly). An absolute "must-have" edition for Rick Bass collectors. This copy is one of the Limited Slipcased Edition, indicated/numbered as such in pencil on the Back Limitation Page. It is also very prominently and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Rick Bass. This title is a great book. This is one of very few copies of the Limited Slipcased Edition still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine collectible copy. Bookseller Inventory # 18587
