About this book

Chadwick joins a crew of dedicated wildlife managers working to educate grizzlies about where they should and shouldn't go in the populated areas of northwestern Montana. With "schooling" methods that range from shooting the bears with rubber bullets to charging at them with teams of specially trained Karelian dogs, these people are doing everything they can to save a threatened species.

True Grizz goes a long way toward clearing away rip-snorting tales to explain what most encounters today between Montana's two top predators - grizzlies and humans - are actually like. - Katharine Mieszkowski, High Country News "[A] captivating book....Chadwick gives readers the insight into understanding the nature of the bear, allowing a better chance for safe interactions of bears and people, and thereby allowing grizzlies a better chance for survival....Enjoyable, entertaining [and] informative." - Linda Appel, Jrnl of Range Management "In this well-written volume of natural history, Chadwick, a wildlife biologist and author of The Fate of the Elephant, turns his attention to the precarious future of the grizzly bear. Chadwick creatively describes the individual histories and distinctive personalities of the grizzlies he observed.... A fascinating look at part of the quickly disappearing natural world." - Publishers Weekly"
