Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

A Vietnam veteran describes his twenty-year odyssey living next to nature and among the American grizzly, discussing the bear's habitat, behavior, hunting strategies, mating patterns, and more. Reprint.

Rezension:

Doug Peacock, the model for the George Hayduke of Edward Abbey's novels The Monkey Wrench Gang and Hayduke Lives!, served two tours of duty in Vietnam as a Green Beret medic, ministering to the Montagnard and Hre peoples of the highlands while trying to jump over the bullets that rang around him. When he returned home, as he writes, "I retreated to the woods and pushed my mind toward sleep with cheap wine." In those woods he found grizzly bears, and among them he shook off memories of war. In the pages of this memoir, recounting what has now been Peacock's many years among them, the bears of Montana come to life. They find an eloquent protector here.
