I just finished reading Wolf: What’s to Misunderstand?. It is a book by Thomas K. Remington published in 2014.
The book covers the history of wolves. It describes ancient references to wolves in European history and the early history of wolves as America was being settled by European farmers, ranchers and other rural settlers.
It is mainly about the recent “restoration” and “re-introduction” of wolves in the Lower 48 states. The politics and bureaucratic “shenanigans” (a politically correct synonym for lies, ignorance and self-serving hidden agendas) of the past 40 years are covered in a way particularly geared for the general public, those casually interested in the subject, and those wanting to expand their understanding of how we got to where we are today in order to figure out what must be done if rural American communities are to be safe, productive and vibrant nurseries for families and communities that have been the backbone of the Nation for 240 years.
Tom is, like the Founding Fathers envisioned running the country, a citizen with a sharp mind, a deep interest in the wolf travesty, and the gumption to put together a book for others to understand what so many strive to keep “un-understandable”. His observations and insights are geared to others like himself, that is the American citizenry. They are refreshing for me and should prove useful to many others.
I believe it is a book worth reading and certainly a book worth giving to others in our families, workplace, church and neighborhoods.
The book is available in paperback and Kindle on Amazon, paperback of Barnes and Noble, paperback and signed copies on his website at tomremington.com (Link with book cover in right column, under “Tom’s Library.)”
NOTE: This is an honest recommendation for which I am not compensated nor awarded any tax break by faceless bureaucrats or omnipresent politicians. You can take that to the bank.
