Diving into their genetic past as far back as the Pleistocene epoch and on up to restoration efforts in recent times, Flores is especially evocative and illuminating about the lives of these animals (and their interactions with humans) in ...

During his wolf assignment, he spent six weeks working a stretch of Highway 212
, which runs across the Wyoming park's northern boundary from Mammoth Hot
Springs to Cooke City. When the snow gets deep, it forces the wildlife down from
the mountains and buttes onto the vast white plain of Lamar Valley. ”You look
across it and see hundreds of bison and elk," Sartore says. ''It's like America's
Serengeti.” Wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone in 1995. Today, about 120

This was America's Serengeti—the scene that drew European wealth and royalty
to the Great Plains as tourists 150 years ago. The infinite reach of the Great
Plains vistas, the abundant animals—it was another world entered, profoundly
different and dramatically beautiful. It was the scene Buffalo Bill Cody showed the
Czarevitch. The first American parks preserved oddities—generally beautiful
ones: Yellowstone's geysers and hot mud, Yosemite's glacier-carved granite, the

And caribou. The Coastal Plain has been called “America's Serengeti,” and not
without reason. In addition to the Central Arctic Herd, a population of the big
ungulates that resides in the central and western portion of the Brooks Range
and on the broader portions of the North Slope west of the Canning River, there
is the Porcupine Caribou Herd, whose numbers can vary between 160,000 and
180,000, depending upon the health of the herd in any given year. The annual
wanderings ...

The Refuge, presently referred to as America's Serengeti is huge and contains
vast concentrations of wildlife. The nineteen million acre refuge hosts perhaps
the largest complex Arctic ecosystem, as yet unaltered by industrialization. It is
also the only coastline in Alaska still off limits to oil leasing, but it makes up only
about 105 miles out of 1,200 miles of coastline. Prudoe Bay and the Beaufort Sea
lie just north of the Refuge, and through the Trans Alaska Pipeline system to
Valdez, ...

We long thought that we knew the story of the initial peopling of the Americas:
Nomadic mammoth hunters moved out of the Russian steppe, across the ice age
Bering land bridge, down an ice-free corridor between the major ice sheets of
Canada, and onto the northern Great Plains. This brought them to an American
Serengeti of giant bison, mammoth, mastodon, horse, camel, and many other
worthy game animals. Once in America some 13,500 years ago, these big game
hunters ...
