I also just finished reading "American Wolf" by Nate Blakeslee. I watched "06"s grandfather, "21" and the Druid Pack in the PBS Nature Episode "In the Valley of the Wolves". In fact, it has become a tradition for me to watch "In the Valley of the Wolves" and "Christmas in Yellowstone" every Christmas season for the past decade. As I was reading "American Wolf", I was seeing "21" in my mind, through to his granddaughter "06". I immediately connected with "06" and I would picture the movements of her pack as they hunted and as they encountered other wolves, as if it were the Nature episode. When I reached the chapter when the hunter raised his rifle, my heart sank. The night I finished the book I couldn't sleep. It's hard to explain, but the feeling of loss was very deep. Thank you for this beautiful memorial to "06".
