Dorothy Hinshaw Patent in When Wolves Returned:Restoring Nature's Balance in Yellowstone manages to pack an incredible amount of information in just forty pages, especially considering that those pages also contain some incredible photographs of the park and its animals. Not only is the information presented in an easily understood manner but it gives a good overview of how an ecological system works and what happens when one element of that system is missing.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Yellowstone National Park's majestic geologic wonders and remarkable wildlife draw millions of visitors each year. But there was a time when these natural treasures were in great danger, all because after years of unrestricted hunting, one key piece of the puzzle had been eliminated—the wolf.

Now, more than a decade after scientists realized the wolves' essential role and returned them to Yellowstone, the park's natural balance is gradually being restored. The informative dual-level text and spectacular full-color photographs show the wolves in the natural habitat that was almost lost without them. Readers of all ages will be inspired by the delicate natural system that is Yellowstone. (YA, Ages: 6-10)
