About this book

Linda Hunter was terrified of bears, but she yearned for the solitude of the wilderness. Setting aside her fears, she became an expert tracker and guide and grew to miss the company of the very animals that once kept her from her love of the outdoors. As caretakers and guides at Redoubt Bay Lodge, Hunter and her husband lived side by side with brown bears in Alaska, learning to understand their behavior and developing a passion for conserving their natural habitat. This is a moving story about personal transformation, with insights about bear behavior, luscious full-color photos, and informative and entertaining anecdotes. For fans of The Grizzly Maze and Grizzly Man, but also for any reader who cares about wild animals.
