Children's LiteratureThe story of this grizzly bear was written back in 1934 by a man who spent most of his life in the Montana wilderness. Both in 1934 and 1937, for various reasons, the story was rejected by publishers. What a pity! I found the rendition of the grizzly cub's early life—from her perspective—quite informative and at times humorous. She sure gets cuffed by her mother quite a few times for misbehaving. When Jenny grows into an adult and is on her own, you see how she blossoms and develops her own personality and lifestyle. Mr. Linderman's granddaughter, Sarah Waller Hatfield, has presented us with this fascinating story of the habits of grizzly bears for us to learn and to appreciate—70 years after her grandfather wrote it. 2005, University of Nebraska Press, Ages 10 to 13.
