If you pick up this book to learn about the wolves in Yellowstone, you will not be disappointed. Along the way, you will also learn in exquisite detail about the coyotes, ravens, cottonwoods, and sagebrush that inhabit the Lamar Valley. Rick Lamplugh approaches his subjects with reverence but not to worship. His respect is rooted in science and in the tactile sensations of his winter living amongst the creatures of the Lamar.
Review by Marjane Ambler, author of Yellowstone Has Teeth
Rick Lamplugh's love of the wild in Yellowstone shines brightly in these eloquent narratives, conceived while living in the park's Lamar Valley--prime wolf habitat. His stories pull the reader into adventures and mis-adventures of cold wind and blowing snow, the reality of life and death in nature, and the complexities of managing wildlife and human park visitors.
Review by Barbara J. Moritsch, author of The Soul of Yosemite
From the Back Cover
"Rick Lamplugh provides a refreshing natural history perspective of the ecological inner workings of the Lamar ecosystem. A perspective with a literary bent reminiscent of great naturalist writers such as Ann Zwinger--a touch of science and a touch of sentiment. From his line drawn in the snow to help visitors understand the battle of life and death played out between wolf and elk in the wintry viewscape, Rick teaches all who will read In the Temple of Wolves an understanding and appreciation of nature." Jim Halfpenny, Ph.D., A Naturalist's World

Rick captures the essences of the characters of the valley both four and two legged and writes with an eloquent sense of place. I have spent many days in the Lamar Valley of the Northern Range and every page resurrected a wonderful memory. Reading Rick's book is the next best thing to being there.
Lamplugh is a volunteer with the Yellowstone Association, and in this book, he tells stories about his time working in Yellowstone. It is evident throughout the book that he is a well-read naturalist who is very curious about the unique workings of the Yellowstone ecosystem. Lamplugh is a talented story-teller, and each chapter will get you excited about this magical place some refer to as “Wonderland”. Make this book a part of your personal library.
I highly recommend this book.
