They’re setting out from the edge of the Rockies, from more than half a continent away, and trekking across frightfully dangerous and unforgiving lands in search of mates. Hundreds have died trying, none have survived. When in June, 2011, one of these cats made it all the way to the East coast before getting run over on a Connecticut parkway, I knew that somewhere within that one incredible fact lay the details of an even more incredible journey—a journey whose story I dedicated myself to telling.

The short answer is, I didn’t. I developed a case of compassion fatigue that haunts me still. I remain astounded by this animal’s heroics, and forever thankful I was able to document his life for history's sake. But I've also become allergic to the never-ending reports of cruelties and injustices toward his kind, and so limit my reading to more uplifting stories of those championing the animals.(less)

“One never sleepwalks through grizzlyland, dreaming of other places to be.”
William Stolzenburg, Where the Wild Things Were: Life, Death, and Ecological Wreckage in a Land of Vanishing Predators

“The world as first seen by the child becomes his lifelong standard of excellence, mindless of the fact he is admiring the ruins of his parents.”
William Stolzenburg, Where the Wild Things Were: Life, Death, and Ecological Wreckage in a Land of Vanishing Predators

“In the hurtling pronghorn, the vanished predators have left behind a heartrending spectacle. Through the smoking displays of wild abandon runs a desperate spirit, resigned to racing pickup trucks in its eternal longing for cheetahs.”
William Stolzenburg, Where the Wild Things Were: Life, Death, and Ecological Wreckage in a Land of Vanishing Predators
