About this book

Will Troyer vividly recounts both the harrowing adventures and the moving experiences that have marked his career as a wildlife biologist.

Beginning in 1951, Troyer embarked on a thirty-year career with the U.S. Department of the Interior that included positions as a fish and game warden and the manager of the Kodiak Island brown bear preserve. Troyer's engaging prose affirms his passionate connection to the natural world, as he describes such experiences as being in the midst of a herd of 40,000 caribou.

"Bear Wrangler" is an absorbing tale of one man's experience as an authentic pioneer in the last vestiges of American wilderness.
