Wolf Stalker, by Gloria Skurzynski and Alane Ferguson
This is one of a series of "National Parks Mysteries" by Skurzynski and Ferguson. I chose it because, not only is it the first of the series, it also is set on the border of Idaho and Wyoming. Overall I was just a little disappointed. I had hoped for more science and perhaps even a stronger mystery. It is very readable and I think young adolescents will enjoy it. With its nearly local context readers in Idaho are likely to enjoy it for the local flavor. (Skurzynski lives in Boise.) There may be some who are anti-wolf reintroduction. This book is clearly on the pro-reintroduction side.
