Reviews

"With the passion of a poet and the precision of a topnotch professional, biologist Will Troyer verbally sculpts an exceptionally accurate and eloquent depiction of one of Alaska's most magnificent--and often misunderstood--creatures. Reading it should be required of all who venture into bear country and relished even by those who would rather not." --JAY HAMMOND, author and former governor of Alaska
