Wolves came a long way in a human lifetime.  In Oregon, the last bounty for killing a wild wolf was paid out in 1947.

60+ years later, OR-7 captured the attention of the state and nation, as the first wolf known to be living free west of the Cascades since the time of extermination. 

OR-7 is one of the key characters in Brenda Peterson's book Wolf Nation: The Life, Death, and Return of Wild American Wolves

Peterson weaves ecology and ancient lore together in her work; she visits with highlights.
