On the Trail of Wolves: A British Adventure in the Wild West
When TV Presenter Philippa Forrester and her nature-loving family moved to the wilds of Grand Teton National Park, they quickly learned to love the wildlife of Wyoming and nearby Yellowstone. But nothing she had learned from her studies in the UK could have prepared her for the reality of living amongst the grizzlies, elk and wolves of her new home nor the antipathy of some of her neighbours about sharing their land with wolves. Philippa journeyed with conservationists, rangers, hunters and ranch owners to investigate when, and why, opinions on wolves became so polarised.
