Best Selling Author Rick Lamplugh Slated For 3rd Annual Sedona Wolf Week

The organizers of Sedona Wolf Week (SWW) are elated to announce that acclaimed best-selling author Rick Lampugh will be part of this year's event. Back for its third year, March 25-30, SWW is a joint project of Plan B to Save Wolves and Apex Protection Project. Sedona Wolf Week's mission is to change the way people view wolves and to affect how the government develops policies regarding wolves while creating respect and protections for this essential apex predator.

Writing to protect wildlife and preserve wildlands, Rick Lamplugh lives in Gardiner, Montana, at Yellowstone's north gate. His first book, In the Temple of Wolves: A Winter's Immersion in Wild Yellowstone vividly captures the wolves and ecology of Yellowstone's Lamar Valley and Rick's experience of living and volunteering there for three winters. It shot to the top of Amazon's best-seller list and has earned more than 320 Five-Star reviews.

He returned with a bestselling sequel, Deep into Yellowstone: A Year's Immersion in Grandeur and Controversy, which won a Gold Medal in the Independent Publisher Book Awards.

Dr. Cristina Eisenberg, the Chief Scientist of the Earthwatch Institute, says of his work, "Eminent naturalist and wildlife advocate Rick Lamplugh draws from a deep personal wellspring of experience and knowledge to take readers into Yellowstone National Park's wild heart. In this superb weave of memoir, natural history, and public policy grounded in science, he shares life lessons from animals who have crossed his path and unflinching insights about what it will take to conserve bison, wolves, and grizzlies."

His new book is the prequel, The Wilds of Aging: A Journey of Heart and Mind. In this scintillating book, Lamplugh turns to the privacy of his small garden to negotiate the inner wilderness of his own mortality. In outwardly flowing meditations that are as clear and honest as a mountain stream, he delves into the deepest canyons of his being: loss of family and friends, a dysfunctional father, his own inevitable physical decline and death, even a possible afterlife.

Lamplugh's stories have appeared in Yellowstone Reports and literary journals including Composite Arts Magazine, Gold Man Review, Phoebe, Soundings Review, and Feathered Flounder. He won the Jim Stone Grand Prize for Non-Fiction.

The public has the opportunity to join Lamplugh on Thursday, March 28 from 6:30 -8pm for a multimedia presentation that includes original music and excerpts from his bestselling books.

Lamplugh's multimedia presentation will be followed by a VIP Reception and book signing from 8-10pm.
