Summary
The grizzly's range is diminished, but they're spreading across the West again. Descending into valleys where once they were king, bears find the landscape they'd known for eons utterly changed by the new most dominant animal: humans. Andrews tells us about Millie, a typical mother: strong, cunning, fiercely protective of her cubs. But raising those cubs becomes ever harder as the mountains change, the climate warms and people crowd the valleys. Andrews details an entangled, bloody collision between two species in the modern-day West, where the shrinking wilds force man and bear into ever closer proximity. -- adapted from jacket
