A pack of wolves makes a sudden savage return to the Rocky Mountain ranching town of Hope, Montana, where a century earlier they were slaughtered by the thousands. Now shielded by law as an endangered species, they reawaken an ancient hatred that will tear a family, and ultimately the town, apart. At the center of the storm is Helen Ross, a twenty-nine-year-old wolf biologist sent alone into this remote and hostile place to protect the wolves from those who seek to destroy them. The Loop charts her struggle, and her dangerous love affair with the son of her most powerful opponent, the brutal and charismatic rancher Buck Calder. A haunting exploration of man's conflict with nature and the wild within himself, an epic story of deadly passions and redemptive love set against the grandeur of the American West, The Loop is destined to capture the hearts and imaginations of readers everywhere.

A tightly plotted adventure novel from the author of The Horse Whisperer, which revolves around the reintroduction of wolves into the American West. Full of suspense, romance and animal rights issues.

Good story but if you want a good read with more details about wolves, read Jodi Picoult's 'Lone Wolf'

Great story about a conflict between Montana ranchers and the biologists who are re-introducing wolves to federal lands.
