An important book for those who love the West and are concerned about the natural world and the sacredness of all life (not just human beings).

Review quote

On Behalf of the Wolf and the First Peoples is important, well written, and long overdue. It should be in every library and on the shelves of everyone who has an interest in Native American culture. -- Roger Welsch History and poetry blend together in these pages. I can think of no collection of essays that I've enjoyed more in recent years. This is a book that all who love the West, who are concerned about the natural world, who believe in truth and the sacredness of all life need to read. It will move them and it will give them courage. -- Joseph Bruchac
