The North Cascades are the traditional home of fierce carnivores who were disrupted and displaced by civilization in the 19th and 20th centuries. These iconic mammals—wolverines, wolves, grizzlies and fishers—have recently experienced a comeback. With the help of the National Park Service (NPS), Washington State Fish and Wildlife, and other conservation-minded organizations, they're moving back into their traditional territories.

Photographer Steven Gnam and NPS Ranger Jason Ransom team up to present the latest facts on the ground illustrated with stunning images of these masters of the Wild Nearby.
