As a young man, one of America's first conservationists, the late Aldo Leopold, instantly regretted his actions as he watched the fierce green fire die in the eyes of the wolf he had just killed. He would come to understand the negative repercussions the removal of these important keystone species would have on western ecosystems. Not less than 26 species native to the Rocky Mountain West owe their extinction in large part to 150 years of domination of US public lands by the politically powerful livestock industry. These species including the Gray Wolf were exterminated for the convenience of "Public Lands Ranchers." In her debut novel, Catherine Laslie, places a group of wildlife activists in the center of this politically tumultuous scene. The small but intrepid group of "Forest Warriors" will no longer tolerate the destruction of America's precious wildlife heritage to ensure the profits of one industry. Unable to penetrate the bastions of power held by the bovine oligarchy the group, spearheaded by activist Cara Berriman, embark on a clandestine mission to establish and protect a population of environmentally vital predators ~ the Gray Wolf ~ to its rightful place in the ecosystems of the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Their unorthodox approach to habitat conservation sparks a movememt that spreads across the land like wildfire. Frought with adventure, intrigue, peril and intense emotion, the "Forest Warriors" never waiver in their commitment to keep the Green Fire Burning in the eyes of the endangered Gray Wolf. Reviews: "I could almost breathe the Rocky Mountain air and feel the presence of the magnificent wolf. In her first novel, The Green Fire Burning, Ms. Laslie brings and enlightening and passionately strong storyline with endearing characters, and heartfelt commitment to a noble cause. I literally could not put the book down. This hasn't occurred for me with a first novel in a very long time." ~ Yvonne Moore ~ Through The Reading Glass. "The Green Fire Burning captures the ongoing struggle for land usage between people and wildlife, one hundred years after the taming of the west. The problems of ranchers slam up against the interests of those who wish to keep the lands with its remaining wildlife healthy and wild. Wrapped around moral issues of money and justice, laws and freedom are enduring friendships, love and hatred between the characters. The lines between angels and devils are blurred only to be refocussed in the fire of a wolves eyes." ~ Linda Jo Hunter ~ Artist, Tracker and Author of, "Lonesome For Bears, A Woman's Journey in the Tracks of the Wilderness" (Lyons Press)
