Authored by a renowned naturalist and wolf researcher, The Rise of Wolf 8 reads like a gripping hero's journey, interweaving themes of tragedy, revenge, love, and heartbreak to craft a powerful portrait of an exceptional alpha wolf, whose dramatic life will forever transform our understanding of this iconic yet persecuted species.
The Rise of Wolf 8 follows the incredible journey of one of the first wolves to inhabit Yellowstone in more than 60 years. In 1928, park rangers killed the last Yellowstone wolf, and in 1995, they sought to bring the species back. Small and slight, Wolf 8 struggles at first, but later thrives, as he surprisingly steps into the role of alpha male for a female whose mate was shot. Wolf 8 excels at hunting, protecting his family, and even defending against the rival pack that killed his father. But soon his valor is tested in a tragic face-off against his own son, resulting in a dramatic twist ending. Alternately heart-wrenching and uplifting, and uniquely cinematic, The Rise of Wolf 8 is the mark of an original bold new trilogy.
Rick McIntyre has worked in national parks for more than fifty years and has recorded more sightings of wild wolves than any other person. For fifteen years, he rose before dawn every day to observe the Yellowstone wolves. Now retired, he has spoken about the Yellowstone Wolves with news outlets such as 60 Minutes and NPR’s Snap Judgement, and is profiled extensively in American Wolf by Nate Blakeslee.
In addition to his work as an actor, director and producer, Robert Redford has been a passionate art and environmental activist since the early 1970’s. He has been an advocate for climate change awareness, clean energy and habitat protection for over 40 years.

I had already begun to apply organic principles within my own beekeeping and I am now convinced that the biodynamic route is the one I shall take."

"From poetic opening lines to a royal jelly finale this wonderful book has been written from the heart-mind of a man who truly loves his bees. Readers may feel themselves transported to stand beside the beekeeper, accompanying him as he tends to his hive. Which is of course the book's defining strength. Well illustrated with excellent photographs and clear diagrams."
