Overview

Bill Fischer Award Finalist for Best First Book (Nonfiction)

More than a wildlife story, this thoughtfully constructed celebration of the grizzly bear features the work of Irish photographer Dave Campbell in a skillfully realized journey around one of the last surviving tracts of temperate rainforest on Earth: Knight Inlet, British Columbia. Traveling between spring and summer over an eight-year period, Campbell captured photographs of this threatened landscape, championing one of the few safe havens of the raincoast grizzly bear by simply documenting the world in which these magnificent animals live. Moving gradually from the skies over the inlet to the depths of the forest, with scenery, plant life, and other animals of the Canadian wilderness throughout, the narrative comes face to face with the grizzlies in their natural state, not as the aggressors of popular imagination, but as gentle creatures—the playful bear, the fisher bear, and the family bear.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“A celebration of power, grace, intelligence and individuality—the suite of survival traits that makes brown bears the wonders they are. And as you explore from cover to cover, you find yourself immersed ever more deeply in the untamed beauty of the landscapes the creatures call home. It is a story of life in a splendored place among a community of wild neighbors, and it comes straight and strong from the heart.”  —Douglas H. Chadwick, biologist, author, and regular contributor to National Geographic
