Down from the Mountain: The Life and Death of a Grizzly Bear - Bryce Andrews

Down from the Mountain: The Life and Death of a Grizzly Bear


"Andrews's wonderful Down from the Mountain is deeply informed by personal experience and made all the stronger by his compassion and measured thoughts . . . Welcome and impressive work." --Barry Lopez

The story of a grizzly bear named Millie: her life, death, and cubs, and what they reveal about the changing character of the American West

An "ode to wildness and wilderness" (Outside Magazine), Down from the Mountain tells the story of one grizzly in the changing Montana landscape. Millie was cunning, a fiercely protective mother to her cubs. But raising those cubs in the mountains was hard, as the climate warmed and people crowded the valleys. There were obvious dangers, like poachers, and subtle ones, like the corn field that drew her into sure trouble.

That trouble is where award-winning writer, farmer, and conservationist Bryce Andrews's story intersects with Millie's. In this "welcome and impressive work" he shows how this drama is "the core of a major problem in the rural American West--the disagreement between large predatory animals and invasive modern settlers"--an entangled collision where the shrinking wilds force human and bear into ever closer proximity (Barry Lopez).
