Wolf nominated to be the USA’s National Mammal in 1981

Although Mrs. Mary Trindal’s pitch to Congress for making the wolf our country’s National Mammal was unsuccessful, her passionate plea to save the dwindling population is still important.  See page 6 of the Animal Health Foundation‘s magazine for the details.  The image is Seton’s “Sleeping Wolf” which hangs at the Seton Gallery on the Academy for the Love of Learning’s campus in Santa Fe, NM.

The Biography of a Grizzly on a Great List of “Great Books and Where to Read Them”

Smithsonian.com’s blog Off The Road – Travel Adventures of a Nomad on the Cheap recently had an interesting post entitled “Great Books and Where to Read Them.”  One of the books listed was Ernest Thompson Seton’s Biography of a Grizzly, which the author, Alastair Bland,  suggests should be read in the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Park.  Seton is in good company in this article, which includes a variety of other authors, books and suggested locations.  Highly recommended.
