Product Description

icon-lookinside.jpg

Murder in Maine, wolves in Wyoming, and a fugitive—one life-changing summer for wolf biologist, Anna O’Neil. She needs answers. Who shot her father and why? Then, the arrival of a mysterious document forces Anna to examine her own beliefs and gives her the key to restore a divided community. But, first, she must find the courage to confront a hidden evil and catch her father’s killer. 

THE CANAAN CREED is a story that needs telling—a keyhole view into a culturally-relevant and emotionally-charged issue. Radical environmentalism is on the march across America, leaving a wide swath of collateral damage. People are suffering—their voices often silenced by an agenda that omits humankind from the ecological equation. 

L. P. Hoffman, a Wyoming native, loves a good story. From tales her grandfather shared about local characters, including Buffalo Bill, to the mysteries of Rocky Mountain folklore,  L.P. Hoffman’s imagination was primed at an early age; but the stories born of experience are the ones best told.  From helping to organize a grassroots environmental group near Yellowstone National Park to the insight gained when her husband served in Washington as Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Fish and Wildlife and Parks, L. P. Hoffman has witnessed the extremes of radical environmentalism. It is her hope that those who read THE CANAAN CREED will be inspired to weigh the facts, embrace cooperative conservation, and never stop seeking the TRUTH!

Editorial Reviews:

''When one of one's own pack is downed, people travel great distances to set things right. The Canaan Creed follows wolf biologist Anna O'Neil, who must return to Maine to investigate the death of her father while she was far away. The emergence of a strange document sets her search upside down. Author L.P. Hoffman crafts an engaging mystery that will keep readers turning the pages. As such, The Canaan Creed is fine reading and highly recommended.'' 
--Midwest Book Review

''L.P. Hoffman knows the West intimately and evokes issues with sure-footed familiarity.''
--C.J. Box, author of Three Weeks to Say Goodbye

''Scaling the heights of suspense, The Canaan Creed concludes on solid ground with a better understanding of a timely topic--environmentalism.''
--The Farmville Herald

''The Canaan Creed does an excellent job of sucking you in with a mystery while pointing out how some environmental groups have an agenda that goes beyond protecting wildlife. In spite of figuring out the killer's identity early, I found The Canaan Creed to be a very interesting tale of how overzealous do-gooders can ultimately bring about harm. It shows that, even if you believe in respecting plants and animals, you shouldn t blindly throw your support behind a group who claims to be green. The mystery itself holds up very well for most of the book, and anyone who picks it up will have a hard time putting it down.'' 
--Lake Powell Chronicle

''The Canaan Creed weaves suspense, mystery and the dark side of environmental fanaticism together to create a page-turning story that keeps the reader hooked until the very end.'' 
--Michael S. Coffman, Ph.D., president of Environmental Perspectives, Inc.

'' 'If God be for us who can be against us?' The Apostle Paul wrote those words in his letter to the church of Rome (Romans 8:31); it's not hard to envision them as the tacit heart of The Canaan Creed, a novel by L.P. Hoffman that weaves together an intricate tale about environmentalism gone awry. Her riveting tale follows the Fischers, a Wyoming family working as outfitters, cafe owners, lumberjacks, and Anna O'Neil, a wildlife biologist at the forefront of the reintroductions of the gray wolf in the Rocky Mountain West. Anna begins to wonder. What she finds will shock you, as it is all too real.'' 
--J. Scott Olmsted, editor-in-chief, American Hunter Magazine

''L. P. Hoffman combines a compelling page-turning yarn coupled with first-rate reporting on the tactics and twisted ethics that can drive radical environmentalists to criminal activity. The characters are well drawn, the dialog is savvy, and the story line is as close as tomorrow's news.'' 
--Dan Miller, publisher and executive vice president, The Heartland Institute

''This book's well-drawn characters and suspenseful plot ensures that it cannot be pigeonholed by political or social philosophy. However, Americans need to heed the moral of the story, lest we find ourselves in an untenable situation.'' 
--Craig Manson, distinguished professor and lecturer, University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law, and former Assistant Secretary of the Interior

''Through suspense and mystery, Hoffman offers her readers a perspective on the environment rarely found in fiction or non-fiction.'' ----Safari Club International
