Descending into valleys where once they were king, grizzly bears find the landscape they'd known for eons utterly changed by the new most dominant animal: humans. As the grizzlies spread across the West again, the people of the region are wary, at best, of their return. Telling the story of a mother bear named Millie, Montana rancher and conservationist Bryce Andrews shows that raising cubs becomes ever harder as the climate warms, people crowd the valleys, and poachers threaten these animals. In this "fascinating, well-researched, and lyrical memoir" (Library Journal), Andrews offers valuable insight on what is happening as the shrinking wilds force man and bear into ever closer proximity.
