I'd give this a 3.5 stars except Goodreads doesn't have half star ratings. It was a well written mystery in Montana that involved a side of the culture I haven't encountered when I've visited the state. Resistant-to-change ranchers, Indians, naive environmentalists, and abrasive government officials all played a role.

Hard to put down, some strange folks, good cast of characters
In this Du Pre mystery, Montana ranchers are pitted against environmentalists, and trespassers are shot. Environmentalists want to reintroduce wolves to the Wolf Mountains, and ranchers are dead set against the idea. Knowing that some of his friends and neighbors are probably the murderers, Du Pre works to solve the puzzle before the situation worsens. There is plenty of pleasure in these novels; I'm happy Open Road Media has reissued them in ebook form.
Somewhat difficult reading for a mystery, because the author writes the main character's dialogue in Métis Creole. The story is about the murders that occur when wolves are reintroduced to a ranching area in northern Montana. Fascinating view of how people living in underpopulated areas view the government and outsiders in general. [Hint: not very pleasantly, and with pretty good reason]

A good book for a quick primer on how people "out west" think.
I won't waste my time on anymore of his books. I couldn't get thru with the book it was too hard to follow

Peter Bowen (b. 1945) is an author best known for mystery novels set in the modern American West. When he was ten, Bowen’s family moved to Bozeman, Montana, where a paper route introduced him to the grizzled old cowboys who frequented a bar called The Oaks. Listening to their stories, some of which stretched back to the 1870s, Bowen found inspiration for his later fiction.
