  • Eisenberg makes the case for maintaining populations of the big carnivores: bears, wolves, cougars, wolverines, bobcats, and jaguars. The most important point is about the need for corridors to connect fragmented populations. Most interestingly, she discusses her experiences with the predators, as she discusses the problems that these animals face in surviving.


  • Really important message and VERY interesting; just a bit repetitive for me, already familiar with a lot of the topics.


  • I read Christina Eisenberg's first book The Wolf's Tooth. That book took time and commitment as it was mostly like reading a scientific treatise with some personal stories thrown in. It was a good book that was unsure of who its audience was--lay person or scientist? Eisenberg's intent with The Wolf's Tooth was to show how top predators, and in particular wolves, have changed the landscape. The "Landscape of Fear" idea is questionable and the full science is not in. [See Yellowstone Wildlife in [...]


  • This technically gets 2.5 stars. I did enjoy the observational prose that was not overly romantic, and appreciated that Eisenberg touched on most viewpoints in the discussion of the myriad issues facing such charismatic species as North American carnivores, the tendency to give the Latin name of a species the first time it was mentioned in a chapter interrupted the flow. I also felt it could've benefited from a moderately more in-depth discussion on conservation.


  • The history and current state of large carnivore prospects in the "Carnivore Way", extending from Mexico through the northern Rockies then into Canada and the Yukon. Eisenberg is an extraordinary ecological scientist. Her multiple graduate level degrees in forest ecology, and her ability to write to interested laymen like myself, made this book readable, fascinating, and factual. Highly recommended if you have interest in the large ecological matrix of the Rocky Mountains.


  • "but ultimately, coexistence has to do with our human hearts." For anyone interested in large carnivore/omnivore land mammals of North America, this explains their history, current status, the intricacies of politics and nature, their effects etc in a way anyone can understand. Loved reading this.


  • A decent book for people who don't already know a lot about carnivores. If you do I recommend you skip this book.
