Go Green Reads Group discusses "American Wolf."

In the nonfiction book  American Wolf: A True Story of Survival and Obsession in the West, author Nate Blakeslee tells the novelistic story of the rise and reign of O-Six, a charismatic and celebrated Yellowstone alpha female wolf. Uncommonly powerful, O-Six is a kind and merciful leader, a fiercely intelligent fighter, and a doting mother. But as she raises her pups and protects her pack, O-Six is challenged on all fronts - by hunters, cattle ranchers, and other wolves. This book also tells a larger story about the ongoing cultural clash in the West between those fighting for a vanishing way of life and conservationists committed to restoring natural landscape and habitat.

The Go Green Reads discussions are free and open to the public. This discussion group started in the spring of 2017. They focus on environmental and sustainable topics such as consumption, waste management, farming/gardening, native plants, water, capitalism, and climate change, just to name a few. The goal of Go Green Reads is to spread awareness and inspire collective and individual action. In addtion to discussing books, the group screens movies, engages speakers, and organizes local field trips.
