Rick Lamplugh, a local writer and advocate for wildlife and wildlands, will read excerpts from his last three books at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 10 as part of the Writers Night series at Pine Creek Lodge.

Rick Lamplugh lives in Gardiner at Yellowstone’s north gate. His books include “In The Temple of the Wolves: A Winter’s Immersion in Wild Yellowstone,” in which he spends three months exploring the park’s Lamar Valley on skis and snowshoes.

In his second book, “Deep into Yellowstone: A Year’s Immersion in Grandeur and Controversy,” Lamplugh explains important controversies surrounding the park, including the fight to stop the slaughter of park bison, the overuse of Yellowstone, the battle to prevent gold mining on Yellowstone’s northern border, and the debate around large predators like wolves and grizzly bears.

In his latest books, “The Wilds of Aging: A Journey of Heart and Mind,” Lamplugh couples intimate moments with stories from adventures in wild country.

Lamplugh’s reading at Pine Creek will be accompanied by original recorded piano music composed by Suzannah Doyle.
