Description

More than ever before, bears and human beings are living closer together as climate change, deforestation and community encroachment diminish bear territory. Once considered romantic creatures living in rural surroundings, bears are now becoming as common in some places as raccoons.
      Some experts believe that the animals should be left entirely alone; others argue that responsible hunting will best serve both bears and human beings. In Grizzlyville, award-winning writer Jake MacDonald gives weight to both sides as he examines the history and behaviour of the three species of bears in North America—grizzlies, black bears and polar bears.
      Part memoir, part natural history, Grizzlyville is MacDonald’s fascinating mediation on North America’s largest predators and on the people who live alongside them. As he skillfully interweaves their stories, he delivers a message for all to consider as bear habitat shrinks and our worlds come ever closer together.

Editorial Reviews

“MacDonald entertains us with his wit and literary skill.”

— <em>Quill & Quire</em>

“MacDonald’s book has many fascinating revelations.”

— <em>The Globe and Mail</em>

Grizzlyville does a wondrous job of placing bears back where they belong . . . in the natural world and in those recesses of human imagination where bears have always lived. Jake MacDonald has written a vivid book, rich in detail, about one of the earth’s greatest creatures.”

— Thomas McGuane, author of <em>The Longest Silence</em>

“Jake MacDonald is as masterful in the wild as he is at a keyboard--and Grizzlyville is a great, great book.”

— Roy MacGregor, author of <em>A Life in the Bush</em>
