Live Stream with Rick McIntyre - The Reign of Wolf 21

An Examination of Yellowstone's Legendary Druid Pack; An Nature Book Talk

In this compelling follow-up to the national bestseller The Rise of Wolf 8Rick McIntyre profiles one of Yellowstone's most revered alpha males, Wolf 21. Leader of the Druid Peak Pack, Wolf 21 was known for his unwavering bravery, his unusual benevolence (unlike other alphas, he never killed defeated rival males), and his fierce commitment to his mate, the formidable Wolf 42.

Wolf 21 and Wolf 42 were attracted to each other the moment they met--but Wolf 42's jealous sister interfered viciously in their relationship. After an explosive insurrection within the pack, the two wolves came together at last as leaders of the Druid Peak Pack, which dominated the park for more than 10 years.

McIntyre recounts the pack's fascinating saga with compassion and a keen eye for detail, drawing on his many years of experience observing Yellowstone wolves in the wild. His outstanding work of science writing offers unparalleled insight into wolf behavior and Yellowstone's famed wolf reintroduction project. It also offers a love story for the ages.

RICK MCINTYRE has spent more than fifty years watching wolves in America‚Äôs national parks, twenty-five of those years in Yellowstone, where he has accumulated over 100,000 wolf sightings. He has spoken about the Yellowstone wolves with 60 Minutes, NPR, and CBC, among other media outlets. He lives in Silver Gate, Montana.
