Through an account of evolving ideas about wolves and coyotes, Thomas Dunlap shows how American attitudes toward animals have changed.


"Beginning with nineteenth-century underpinnings to wildlife conservation, Thomas R. Dunlap's interesting book explores how we have deepened our commitment to and broadened the scope of animal conservation through the 1980s.... A well-written and effective statement."--Robin W. Doughty, The Journal of American History

"Dunlap uses animals to tell a fable about human values.... The fabular quality of the book comes through in its slim size, its deft distillation of mountains of source material, its frequently epigrammatic language, and its singular focus on how science has revolutionized the intellectual and mythic landscape of American civilization."--Stephen J. Pyne, Pacific Northwest Quarterly

"A major contribution to American intellectual and environmental history."--Roderick Frazier Nash, Western Historical Quarterly
