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.
Douglas H. Chadwick is a wildlife biologist and the author of seven books on natural history, including the acclaimed The Fate of the Elephant, named by the New York Times Book Review as a Best Book of the Year.
