What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Don’t we all, secretly, want to transform? To be a bird in the sky, a fish in the river, a fox in the woods? The Bear Suit explores this very human impulse in original and surprising ways…anyone who has ever gone camping or who just thinks about it a lot will enjoy this wonderful and engaging story about being in nature and the wilds of the American West.”
—Sharman Apt Russell, author of Diary of Citizen Scientist, winner of 2016 John Burroughs Medal for Distinguished Nature Writing
