Driving Questions, Significant Findings Two questions drive this book. First, what truths about the lives of Denali's wolves, and the impacts of human exploitation, did this detailed, long-term research reveal? And second, what compels individuals to stick to their work and ideals when they are continually met with resistance from all sides—not just hunters and trappers, but also state and federal officials, and even other wolf biologists? ” Therein lies the essence of a true scientist. But a larger part of the answer to the second question comes from the answer to the first—from what he observed, day in and day out, in his field work with wolves.
