Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Veteran nature writer McNamee took on ursus arctos horribilis in this 1994 title, which "blends a wealth of scientific fact with a fine literary style" (LJ 10/15/84). Rather than providing a simple portrait of the bear, McNamee follows the lives of a fictitious mother bear and her cubs from April to October, including facts about their growth, diet, etc., based on the observations of grizzly specialists. "This book can stand with the classic treatises on grizzlies and with the lyric nature writing of Carson, Dillard, et al."
