Seton based the book on his experience hunting wolves in the Southwestern United States. During the s, Lobo and his pack, having been deprived of their natural prey such as bison, elk, and pronghorn by settlers, became forced to prey on the settlers' livestock to survive. The ranchers at Cross L Ranch  tried to kill Lobo and his pack by poisoning animal carcasses, but the wolves removed the poisoned pieces and threw them aside, eating the rest.
They tried to kill the wolves with traps and by hunting parties but these efforts also failed. Seton tried poisoning five baits, carefully covering traces of human scent, and setting them out in Lobo's territory.
The following day all the baits were gone, and Seton assumed Lobo would be dead. Later, however, he found the five baits all in a pile covered by wolf feces to show Lobo's contempt and mockery of Seton's attempt to kill him and The Wolf - Desire The Horse - The River other wolves. Seton bought new, Into The Void - Sleeping Widow - The Begining Of The End traps and carefully concealed them in Lobo's territory, but he later found Lobo's tracks leading from trap to trap, exposing each.
When an effort that was initially supposed to take two weeks stretched into 4 months of failed attempts to capture Lobo, Seton became tired and frustrated. While camping out above the creek where snow geese and cranes were wintering, he found Lobo's track strangely following a set of smaller tracks.
Quickly Dvořák* - Ses Plus Belles Pages realized Lobo's weakness: his mate, a white wolf nicknamed Blanca. Seton then set out several traps in a narrow passage thinking Blanca would fall for Seton's planted baits that Lobo had thus far managed to avoid.
Finally Seton succeeded; Blanca, while trying to investigate Seton's planted cattle head, became trapped. Quem És Tu? - Sagas - Rostu Limpu (CD, Album, Album) Seton found her, she was whining with Lobo by her side. Lobo ran to a safe distance and watched as Seton and his partner killed Blanca and tied her to their horses.
Seton heard the howls of Lobo for two days afterward. Lobo's calls were described by Seton as having "an unmistakable note of sorrow in it It was no longer the loud, defiant howl, but a long, plaintive wail. The Wolf - Desire The Horse - The River the danger, Lobo followed Blanca's scent to Seton's ranch house where they had taken the body.
After spotting Lobo wandering near Sueño - Alas - Alas ranch house, Seton set more traps, using Blanca's body to scent them. Prior to this point, Lobo hasn't revealed himself to Seton even once since he arrived at the Currumpaw Valley. But now Lobo's grief has clearly taken over him and dulled his sense of caution. He was now at his most vulnerable, which Seton was well aware of.
On January 31,Lobo was caught, with each of his four legs clutched in a trap. On Seton's approach, Lobo stood despite his injuries, and howled. Touched by Lobo's bravery and loyalty to his mate, Seton could not kill him.
He and his men roped Lobo, muzzled him and secured him to a horse, taking him back to the ranch. Lobo refused to eat or even look at his captors. They secured him with a chain and he just gazed across his fallen kingdom. Lobo died that night, 4 hours later, due to a broken heart. Seton's story of Lobo touched the hearts of many, both in the US and the rest of the world, and was partly responsible for changing views towards the environment and provided a spur for the starting of the conservationist movement.
