Reviews

"Fans of bears--and of hearty nature writing--will take pleasure in Chaney's paean."--Kirkus Reviews


"Robert Chaney tells the story of grizzly bear as an icon and apredator. The book reads like a who's who of scientists, authors, photographers, and Department of Interior battles that have focused on the grizzly for the past four decades."--The Missoulian


"A well-written and thought-provoking analysis of this pressing issue."--The Literary West


"Illustrated with stories and fortified with facts, Chaney reveals layers of complexity providing a multitude of perspectives in his thorough account."--Outside Bozeman


"[A] timely, important read about much more than how humans are trying to co-exist with such a formidable wild mammal. Chaney's book raises moral questions about what kind of West we want to live in."--Billings Gazette


"Meticulous new research methods reveal fascinating insights into bear behavior. Author Robert Chaney has spent decades observing human-grizzly encounters and challenges traditional thinking about conservation and preserving the wild."--NPR Books


"A sobering but modestly optimistic tale of a wilderness icon that refuses to stay in the wilderness set aside for it."--Choice
