Description
First published in 1955, this classic work by the founding director of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming, pays homage to one of the continent's most "pugnacious and extraordinary survivors" of the Pleistocene era, the grizzly bear. Now found only in the northern Rockies, Canada, and Alaska, the grizzly once roamed most of the continent. Harold McCracken describes the first scientific classification of the species as Ursus horribilis in 1815, the role of the grizzly bear in Native American rituals and myths, encounters with early explorers and mountain men, and the aggressive hunting of the bear that nearly wiped it out in the lower 48 states.

"[This book] remains one of the most readable accounts of the discovery, wonder, demise, and ultimate worth of the grizzly bear."—Paul Schullery
