Abstract:

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

The grizzly's range is diminished, but they're spreading across the West again. Descending into valleys where once they were king, bears find the landscape they'd known for eons utterly changed by the new most dominant animal: humans. Andrews tells us about Millie, a typical mother: strong, cunning, fiercely protective of her cubs. But raising those cubs becomes ever harder as the mountains change, the climate warms and people crowd the valleys. Andrews details an entangled, bloody collision between two species in the modern-day West, where the shrinking wilds force man and bear into ever closer proximity. -- adapted from jacket

"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. The grizzly is one of North America's few remaining large predators. Their range is diminished, but they're spreading across the West again. Descending into valleys where once they were king, bears find the landscape they'd known for eons utterly changed by the new most dominant animal: humans. As the grizzlies approach, the people of the region are wary, at best, of their return. In searing detail, award-winning writer, Montana rancher, and conservationist Bryce Andrews tells us about one such grizzly. Millie is a typical mother: strong, cunning, fiercely protective of her cubs. But raising those cubs--a challenging task in the best of times--becomes ever harder as the mountains change, the climate warms and people crowd the valleys. There are obvious dangers, like poachers, and subtle ones as well, like the cornfield that draws her out of the foothills and sets her on a path toward trouble and ruin. That trouble is where Andrews finds Millie. It is the heart of [this story], a singular drama evoking a much larger one: an entangled, bloody collision between two species in the modern West, where the shrinking wilds force human and bear into ever closer proximity. "--Dust jacket.
