When Canadian artist Maureen Enns set out to focus public attention on the grizzly bear she had no idea she would be embarking on a personal odyssey. Soon she was venturing into the remote backcountry of Alberta's Banff National Park and to the northern coast of British Columbia in search of bears. Terrified at first, she discovered that these powerful animals were intelligent, caring, playful and curious, evincing little of the ferocity that makes up popular myth. Grizzly Kingdom is a story of Mauren's struggle to find bears in the wild, and to reveal on canvas and film this majestic symbol of a fragile wilderness. Her artworks and photographs are presented throughout the book.
