"An intimate look at North America's largest predator. Award-winning writer Jake MacDonald examines the history and behavior of the three species of North American bears: grizzlies, black bears, and polar bears. Perceptive and profound, IN BEAR COUNTRY draws on his personal experience and others', telling an absorbing story about the place bears occupy in our world and our place in theirs. Part memoir and part natural history, it is MacDonald's compelling meditation on bears and the people who live alongside them"-- Provided by publisher.
"They terrify and fascinate us. They are moving closer to us as climate change, deforestation, and rural development diminish their habitat. Once considered rare, romantic creatures, bears are now as common in some places as raccoons. Some say we should leave them alone; others argue that responsible hunting will serve both bears and humans best. Weighing both sides of the argument, award-winning writer Jake MacDonald examines the history and behavior of the three species of bears in North America: grizzlies, black bears, and polar bears. Perceptive and profound, In Bear Country draws on the personal experience of MacDonald and others, and tells an absorbing story about the place bears occupy in our world and the place we occupy in theirs. Part memoir and part natural history, this is a compelling meditation on our continent's largest predators and on the people who live alongside them. As the author skillfully interweaves the stories, he delivers a powerful message for all to consider as bear country quickly shrinks and our worlds collide"-- Provided by publisher.
