"Patten is remarkably careful about describing the research while also
imbuing that science with an honest sense of the complexity in such a
system, as well as a personal dimension."
-- Arthur Middleton PhD, Coordinator Absaroka Elk Ecology Project
From the Author
The Wild Excellence evolved over the course of six years of full time life in a small cabin in the Absaroka mountains east of Yellowstone National Park. Moving from the bustling Bay Area to this remote region, I began with an interest in the land and its wildlife. I studied the history of the native peoples who lived here before and hiked to their remains--wikiups and bighorn sheep captures. I was curious about the people who came and homesteaded here and their experiences. And I spent a lot of time outdoors tracking wildlife in order to understand their daily and seasonal rhythms.
