Format: Paperback
Twelve-year-old Jack Landon and his eleven-year-old sister Ashley live with their mom, Olivia, who is a wildlife veterinarian at the National Elk Refuge in Jackson Hole, WY, and their father Steven, who is a photographer. The family also takes in Troy Haverson, a somewhat rebellious thirteen-year-old boy whose mother has just disappeared. Then Olivia gets a call from Mike, head of Yellowstone National Park's Wolf Restoration Program, about a nearby rancher's dog which was supposedly killed by park wolves, and he wants her to come and investigate. When the Landons arrive at Yellowstone, there are all kinds of people picketing and protesting the wolves, and this slows down the rangers. After Mike comes, he, Olivia, and Steven need to go off to investigate the scene, leaving the children for another ranger to pick up. While waiting, the children see a pair of wolves, and as Jack is taking pictures, one of the wolves is shot.
Troy runs after the wolf hoping to save it and perhaps catch the sniper, so Jack and Ashley run after him, and the three of them spend a cold night in the wilderness with the injured wolf. How will they survive? What really happened to the dog and the wolf? Is there more to the rancher's story than he's been telling? And will Troy's mother ever be found? Wolf Stalker is #1 in the National Parks Mystery series. I first saw a display of these books in the gift shop at Valley Forge National Historic Park in Pennsylvania and recognized the name of one of the authors, Gloria Skurzynski, from another wonderful book of hers, The Minstrel in the Tower, that we had read. Gloria Skurzynski and Alane Ferguson are a mother and daughter writing team. It was my hope that there would be one on Valley Forge, but there isn't, so I bought the one about Yellowstone.

I first saw this book when I substituted in a class where the regular teacher was reading it to the class. As I read to the students, I could see immediately how much they were enjoying the story, and I immediately thought of my grandson who loves mysteries and the outdoors. I bought him the book and had it shipped directly to him. Of course he loved the surprise. The next time I saw him, I asked him if he had read much of the book yet. "Oh, yes!" he said. "I've read it three or four times." I think he liked it.

Mysteries in Our National Parks: Wolf Stalker: A Mystery in Yellowstone National Park (Mysteries in Our National Park)

I read this and passed it down for my kids to read - we spent a week in Yellowstone National Park this past summer, so the surroundings in the book were familiar and fun. This is a great book for animal activists or anyone who enjoys Yellowstone.

The following reviews were written by 3rd grade students from north central Minnesota. The students were assigned this book in an intensive reading class that specifically focuses on and researches wolves. As their teacher, I'm proud to post their thoughtful reviews. The kids did an excellent job reading and reflecting on the story. The book "Wolf Stalker" was an excellent addition to our reading class! We live in an area with an abundant wolf population, so this book really hit home and sparked great discussion/interest among the students!

JK-- I read "Wolf Stalker" in my intensive reading in third grade. If you like a good mystery, this is the book you're looking for. The setting is at the beautiful park of Yellowstone. I like reading and this was a good book. If you like wolves one of the main characters is one. I hope you would read this book. This is a book you can enjoy.

YA-- I think "Wolf Stalker" is a great book because it takes on the beautiful park of Yellowstone. The characters are fascinating. They try and figure out a mystery and investigation. If you read this book you will learn a little bit about wolves.

TC-- My intensive reading class in 3rd grade read "Wolf Stalker". I thought it was a great book! I recommend it because I have never seen a wolf, though I like wolves. So I think it was great. I also liked it because it had a mystery in Yellowstone National Park.

BE-- I read this book in my intensive reading class in third grade. I recommend this book because it is awesome. It took place in YNP and I like YNP.

AE-- I read "Wolf Stalker" in my intensive reading class in 3rd grade. I though it was a good book. It was a very interesting book. Most of my intensive class liked it.

This National Geographic YA mystery set in Yellowstone National Park was pretty good. I had to read it for a teaching credit assignment and thought it’d bore me, but it held my attention the whole way through. Written by a mother-daughter team for a series of mysteries set in different national parks, this is one I’d definitely recommend for younger kids who want to learn more about our country’s national resources. This story deals with the wolves that have been reintroduced into Yellowstone. The main family takes in foster kids, and Troy (their current foster kid) is a troubled teen worried about his missing mother. Besides the education about national parks, I felt the characters taught me a lot too about diversity and empathy.
