The Loop opens as a pack of wolves makes a sudden return to the Rocky Mountains ranching town of Hope, Montana, where a century ago, they were slaughtered by the thousands. Now shielded by law as endangered species, they reawaken an ancient hatred that will tear a family and, ultimately, the town apart.
At the center of the storm is Helen Ross, a 29-year-old wolf biologist sent alone into this remote and hostile place to protect the wolves from those who seek to destroy them. The Loop charts her struggle and her dangerous love affair with the son of her most powerful opponent, the brutal and charismatic rancher Buck Calder.
At once a haunting exploration of man’s conflict with nature and the wild within himself and a sweeping story of deadly passions and redemptive love, The Loop is destined to capture the hearts and imaginations of readers everywhere.
