As a ten-year-old I read Jack Olson's original 'Sports Illustrated' article from which the book was eventually derived. I was terrified by the book's subject matter then, terrified years later as a college student and, unfortunately, still now. I recently ordered and reread the book as a 46-year-old and still get the same haunting reaction I had as a child. If there is one lesson to be learned from this book, which I highly recommend, it is this: take nothing for granted.

It's a great book, with a fine description of the area, time period, and chilling accounts from those involved in the tragedies. I'm an occasional reader, and when I do read, I enjoy books about the outdoors. I couldn't put the book down, similar to reading his other book 'Give a Boy a Gun'. You definitely won't go hiking/camping/fishing in bear country without thinking about it!

I first read the book in 1967 when I was twelve. Read it again as an adult, and fully appreciated the impact. Not only does the author capture the beauty of Glacier National Park, Montana, but recounts the chilling details of the events that unfolded at Granite Park Chalet and Trout Lake in 1967. A must read for any outdoor enthusiast.

The auther of Night Of The Grizzlies Jack Olson wrote a four star thriller about a:tall,large, longnosed, sick looking bear. The Grizzly is a trouble some bear that first starts to ravage through the garbage cans at camp Glen. then the bear moves from glen to trout lake and harrasses hikers and campers. The best one was when the bear sneaks up on these two kids from Columbia Falls MT. He ripped up there campgear up, ate there fish, and made them run into the logjam.The book was kinda hard to interpet because there was a lot of hard and large words and there was a lot of dates also to remember. It didn't jump around to much, but it did a little. If you were to get a book I would recommend this book. There is also a good fishing map on the back of the book.

We all passed this book around one summer while working at Yellowstone Nat'l Park. No wonder we didn't sleep a wink when camping out afterwards. Every twig snapping became a nightmare. Very memorable and a great read around the campfire.

I could not put this story down! It was absolutely captivating and the author is probably one of the best I have ever read. He built up the story and drew the reader into the climax. I even read the forward and epilogue!! This book is a must read

Good luck camping after reading this one. Sheesh, no grisly detail was spared. Nightmare fuel.

Interesting history of the Grizzlies and man when they have to share the same space.
