About this book

Inspired by the plight of the Mexican gray wolf, Bobbie Holaday formed the citizens advocacy group Preserve Arizona's Wolves (P.A.WS.) in 1987 and embarked on a crusade to raise public awareness. This book tells her story for the first time, documenting her eleven-year effort to bring the gray wolf back to the Blue. Though the wolf had been listed as endangered since 1976, opposition to it was so strong that the Arizona Game and Fish Department had been unable to launch a recovery program. Holaday describes first-hand the tactics she and other ordinary citizens on the Mexican Wolf Recovery Team adopted to confront these obstacles.

"Perhaps the greatest value of this book is Holaday's subtle reprimand of both cattle ranchers and environmentalists for remaining polarized and failing to understand the other side. Her collaborative approach is a model for success in other controversial projects. An ecological success story with the charismatic wolves at its center, this book will be enjoyed by any wildlife and nature lover, and wildlife managers and activists would do well to heed Holaday's message."
