    Be Very Afraid

    I have throughly enjoyed the antics of Timothy Treadwell,for many years,even knowingly that he was headed for trouble. I sincerely hoped he would 'smarten' up about some defense for himself. I shall miss him greatly, I did truly enjoy him.I truly wanted to find a reason that all the critics were wrong, however, they were not.He put himself and this young woman in danger countless times. Reading the end result is horrible,but predictable. Camping in the wrong place, food out, even tho the food wasn't touched,they were. I don't know why she was there,except for Timothy, and she lived momentarily to regret it. I shall miss Timothy the fox as well, what a treat he was to watch with him. This sheds a great deal of light on so many issues with these huge, beautiful creatures and man.One cannot be too careful.

    insightful bio

    Grizzly bear guru Timothy Treadwell spent thirteen summers living amongst these giants. He became a media favorite because he was always available for a quote. In 2003 while camping in the GRIZZLY MAZE of Alaska's Katmai National Park, Treadwell and his girlfriend Huguenard were attacked and eaten by the bears that he loved. The occurrence captured on tape was the first known human death of this kind in eighty-five years. Nick Jans explores what happened piecing it together like a sleuth on an investigation. Besides covering that gory incident the author looks deep into Treadwell¿s life so that the audience understands what drove this self-proclaimed expert who defied biologist¿ beliefs that his contacts were not good for the bears. --- However, what makes this insightful bio more than just retro sensationalism is the wider discernible perspective in which the author discusses human interactivity with animals in the wild. Mr. Jans makes no apology that he feels this type of interaction is foolish bordering on insanity. Readers will enjoy this deep biography but especially the wider scope that Mr. Jans explores in depth at a time when mankind is tearing down the wilderness. --- Harriet Klausner

    Great Reading

    I read this book in a little over a day. It is both scary and sad at the same time, for the bears and for Timothy and Amie. It reminds us that wild animals are just that, and they will never be tame.
