Fiction

The Last Grizzly tells of a grizzly that, through an unfortunate set of circumstances, wanders far southward from Yellowstone . It is unique in that the story is presented from the viewpoint of the bear and also from the various ranchers, fishermen, hunters and campers terrorized on his odyssey into the San Juan Mountains of Colorado.

U. S. Park Service Ranger Ward Palmer narrates this intense story of a unique inhabitant of Yellowstone Park––one individual of the grizzly bear family, Ursa horribilis. The unusual color, character and behavior of this bear drew Palmer’s attention in its youth, but their paths cross again years later in dramatic fashion, when it terrorizes a group of hikers. This exciting tale reveals the perceptions and experiences of the yellow-faced bear and the people who encounter him. Bear’s perspective: the affront and torment of being hunted by hounds, tranquilized and transported from his home range, attacked, injured and being routed by flames.People’s perspective: what to do about a renegade bear as campers, hikers, fishermen and ranchers fall into unexpected life-threatening confrontations!Rich, picturesque natural imagery and the timely issues of conservation and hunting are woven into the fabric of this tension-filled work that hurdles to its dramatic climax. 


Excerpt

The sound Joe had been waiting for edged into his tuned consciousness over
the drumming of their feet and gasping of their breath. It wasn't the
sound of the bear's feet nor of its breath as Joe had thought it might be,
but rather it was the even spaced sound of a heavy grunt each time the
bear's front feet landed on the trail. With deep dread he knew the time
had come. He stepped aside to let Alan pass, and almost fell as he
tried to turn and get the stick into batting position before he could
stop his forward motion.
And there was the bear, galloping almost upon them, its head level now,
mouth agape, tongue lolling to the side. Two more bounds and it would
be on him and the pain would start. He briefly wondered if the bear
would bite him first or swipe at him with its three inch claws.
Probably both, he thought . . .
