I don’t get the opportunity to do a lot of reading of fiction books.  It is not that I do not enjoy the good fictional book but with 3 kids, tons of reviews and products to go through, an intense travel schedule and a lot of hunting and conservation work to get done it just does not happen as much as I would like.  At the North American Wildlife Conference a gentleman handed me this book and asked me to read it and provide a review for this site.

It took me a couple of weeks to find some time to pick up the book and begin to read it.  I am so glad I found that time.

Picking up The Canaan Creed by L.P. Hoffman, I read it cover to cover and I literally could not put it down.  The engaging  mystery of a shooting, Wolves in Wyoming, Anna O’Neil and a community eaten up in the war for the protection of wildlife and the environment.  This story is a fictionalized account of the battle for the wolves in Wyoming and the moral of the story is one that every citizen needs to hear.  The story drags you in through its characters on a day by day account of the lives of the citizens of Pristine Valley.

This is a story that hunters, conservationists and environmentalists as well as every day citizens need to read.  This book should be required reading for environmental science programs across the country.  The moral of the story is to learn and understand all sides of the situation and do not blindly follow the path of any organization.

The story is very well developed, well written and will maintain a place on my book shelf for years to come….
