About this book

For thirty years, Larry Aumiller lived in close company with the world's largest grouping of brown bears, returning by seaplane every spring to the wilderness side of Cook Inlet, two hundred and fifty miles southwest of Anchorage to work as a manager, teacher, guide, and more. Eventually, without the benefit of formal training in wildlife management or ecology, he became one of the world's leading experts on brown bears, the product of an unprecedented experiment in peaceful coexistence.

In Wild Trust celebrates Aumiller's achievement, telling the story of his decades with the bears alongside his own remarkable photographs. As both professional wildlife managers and ordinary citizens alike continue to struggle to bridge the gap between humans and the wild creatures we've driven out, In Wild Trust is an inspiring account of what we can achieve.
