Take a journey through Yellowstone where you will see an ecosystem restored to balance when its keystone species returns home.
How did I get here…..
You are probably asking yourself. If you landed here on our Kickstarter page, then chances are either we ask you to come here or one of our very supportive friends (thank you supportive friends) did.
Why am I here.....
Well if you haven’t already watched the video, then please do so and you will be better informed. Besides, given our technical skills we are mighty proud that we could actually shoot and upload the thing.
Anyway, by now you know we have written a children’s book called Running for Home about the return of the gray wolf to Yellowstone. Yes, we have submitted the book to publishers and were rejected. But that did not stop us. We then made a presentation to the Yellowstone Association and they love the book and indicated with some help with layout and editing that they would consider carrying the book in their stores! So, we have decided to custom publish the book.
What do you want?
In short, money. If you can give a little we will be eternally grateful and if you can give a lot we want to meet you. Just kidding, thank you to everyone for any amount.
How will you use the money?
When you custom publish essentially that means you pay for everything in advance. That includes but is not limited to illustrating, editing, proofing and printing. Then we have to market the book.
How did you come up with this amount and why such odd increments?
The amounts are set to represent the research collar number of famous wolves. Yellowstone friends will recognize these wolves. The phrase out beside the amount is an attribute that describes this infamous wolf......
