More Information
A thorough exploration of the largest terrestrial carnivore in North America, by the author of The Wolf Almanac.

The Grizzly Almanac
is a close-up look at the animal known to biologists as Ursus arctos horribilis, the ?horrible northern bear.?
A powerful symbol of wilderness, the grizzly was once widespread, from Alaska to Mexico. Today, 99 percent of its population in the lower forty-eight states is gone, due to habitat loss, hunting, and predator control programs based more on emotion than fact.

Practical information for those who seek to share the dwindling domain of the last of the great predators.
