- Honorable Mention, Nature (Adult Nonfiction)
In a style readers compare to Aldo Leopold and a gentle Edward Abbey, Rick immerses you in the grandeur and controversy of Yellowstone. He digs deep into the dispute over hunting Yellowstone wolves outside the park; the debate about whether wolves help the ecosystem and the economy; the concern about overuse of the park; the outrage over the removal of grizzlies from the endangered species list; and the fight to stop the slaughter of park bison. A call to action filled with fact and feeling.
