Why did Americans hate wolves for centuries? And, given the ferocity of this loathing, why are Americans now so protective of the animals? In this provocative history of wolves in America--and of the humans who have hated and loved them--Jon Coleman investigates the sometimes violent and always controversial relationship between the two species. "With lively prose and copious detail (Coleman) deftly weaves together the histories of settler and lupine societies...Provocative, scholarly, scholarly, and readable."--Karen R. Jones, Journal of American History "Thoughtfully conceived, insightful, and well written, Vicious is a wicked good read."--Andrew Kirk, Montana: The Magazine of Western History
