Excerpt from The Grizzly Bear: The Narrative of a Hunter-Naturalist; Historical, Scientific and Adventurous

The object of this book is to place on record the facts I have gleaned, and the deductions I have drawn, from some twenty-five years of more or less constant observation of the grizzly bear. This is an animal much talked about, but little studied. It is now well on its way toward extinction. Our acquaintance with its the history is broken by many gaps and supplemented by many conjectures. Some of these gaps I believe myself able to fill; some of these conjectures I propose to examine and discuss. Before, therefore, venturing even tentatively to take the chair as a witness, I find it only right that I should, in so far as I am entitled to do so, qualify as an expert.

I was born in 1856 on a small farm in southern New Hampshire. This farm, like its neighbors, was little more than piles of rock fenced in by other piles of rock; and from the time I was twelve years old or so I worked on these piles of rock during the summer, and at coopering or lumbering during the winter, and in the saw-mills in the spring.
