Description - The Grizzly Maze by Nick Jans

With a new introduction on Werner Herzog's film entitled The Grizzly ManTimothy Treadwell, self-styled "bear whisperer" dared to live among the grizzlies, seeking to overturn the perception of them as dangerously aggressive animals. When he and his girlfriend were mauled, it created a media sensation.In The Grizzly Maze, Nick Jans, a seasoned outdoor writer with a quarter century of experience writing about Alaska and bears, traces Treadwell's rise from unknown waiter in California to celebrity, providing a moving portrait of the man whose controversial ideas and behavior earned him the scorn of hunters, the adoration of animal lovers and the skepticism of naturalists. "Intensely imagistic, artfully controlled prose . . . behind the building tension of Treadwell's path to oblivion, a stunning landscape looms."--Newsday
