The Wolf That Changed America

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
In the fall of 1893, an adventurous young man rode out from the salons of New York to the wilds of New Mexico. He came to kill a wolf. Not just any wolf, but an outlaw, the leader of a marauding, cattle-killing pack. But by the time Ernest Thompson Seton finally met the renegade lobo, the wolf had become a hero in his eyes. He would write a tale of that encounter that captured the essence of the vanishing wilderness and led to both the establishment of the National Park system and the Boy Scout movement in America. In this retelling of the story, the confrontation between Seton and lobo comes alive and we discover how one man and one wolf set in motion a change in American hearts and minds.
