Great Stories Dec 16, 2005
Living in Wyoming it was great to read the stories and learn about grizzly bears. We learned a lot about them and will stay away when possible. I highly recommend this book. Great author.
Exciting & Delightful Tales from an Excellent Story Teller Jul 30, 2004
This book is great for all ages. Young or old, readers will be drawn in by Tom Reed's easygoing style of story telling. His stories are thoroughly researched, painstakingly detailed and very well written. The tales span a history of over a hundred years from the moutain men of old to the modern day backcountry enthusiasts.
The book is also a good source for the brutal and honest truth about bear dangers for anyone planning on spending time in Wyoming's bear country including Yellowstone and Teton National Parks. Tom Reed's tone and candor do not necessarily appeal to one side or the other of the "grizzly bear politics" so common here in Wyoming. Instead, Tom gives a perspective that only he can as a conservationalist, avid sportsman and long time resident of Wyoming. He gave me a broader insight into, and a new appreciation of, this wild, dangerous, and awesomely breathtaking animal--Bear.
