When I arrive at the historic Lamar Buffalo Ranch on New Year’s Eve, I have one goal: to learn as much as possible about the ecology of the Lamar Valley. All winter I will work and live in this remote corner of Yellowstone, home to some of the best wildlife watching in the world. Winter-hungry elk and bison migrate there to graze. Wolves, coyotes, and mountain lions stalk the grazers while eagles, ravens, and magpies wait to scavenge. The snowy backdrop makes the saga of death and life easy to spot.

I have three frigid months to explore on skis and snowshoes, observe with all my senses, listen to and talk with experts. A literary blend of facts and feelings, In the Temple of Wolves celebrates nature’s stark beauty, while revealing inner battles with my own human nature.
