Of Wolves and Men, by Barry Lopez, is all about human’s interactions with wolves. But it’s also about the power of stories, and how narratives can shape the way we interact with the world and the things that happen at the highest levels of human society. This book did a great job giving an unbiased and honest look at both the good that wolves do for an ecosystem and their natural place in the wild, and the harm that they sometimes do to humans in the form of killing livestock. It then talked about how wolves were systematically killed off in large part because of fear in Europe and North America. In this episode I also talk about my views on wolves as a hunter and in light of Idaho’s ongoing wolf debate.
