The Wolf That Changed America

Aired, Sunday, November 23, at 8:00 p.m. on CPTV

In the fall of 1893, an adventurous young man rode out from the salons of New York to the wilds of New Mexico. He went 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 both to the establishment of the national park system and the Boy Scout movement in America. In this vivid retelling of the story, the confrontation between Seton and Lobo comes alive, and viewers discover how, together, one man and one wolf set in motion a change in American hearts and minds that is still unfolding. Learn more...
