About this book

The Yaak Valley of northwestern Montana is one of the last great wild places in the United States, a land of black bears and grizzlies, wolves and coyotes, bald and golden eagles, and even a handful of humans. Rick Bass captures the soul of the valley itself, and he shows how, if places like the Yaak are lost, so too will be the human riches of mystery and imagination.

"Bass is never better than when he is writing from deep within his passion to save the Yaak."
- The Los Angeles Times

"A passionate, informative recounting of one man's attempt to save a very special piece of the natural world"
- Dallas Morning News
