The Lost Grizzlies chronicles the ongoing search for proof that a small number of grizzly bears still lives in the isolated mountain wilds of southern Colorado. Rick Bass turns his considerable talents to an evocation of wilderness beauty and the history of human encroachment that may, or may not, have wiped out the last of these massive, solitary bears from their southern range.

About the Author:

RICK BASS’s fiction has received O. Henry Awards, numerous Pushcart Prizes, awards from the Texas Institute of Letters, fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Guggenheim Foundation, and his memoir, Why I Came West, was a finalist for a National Book Critics Circle Award.

From School Library Journal:

YA?Grizzly bears had not been seen in the San Juan Mountains of southern Colorado for almost 15 years when a small group of men set out in 1990 to seek definitive evidence that the animals still existed there. They sought a tuft of fur, footprints, or, best of all, photographs to convince wildlife officials that these mountains still provided a habitat for grizzlies, a habitat that should be preserved. Over the next two years, two more expeditions were made until, finally, a confrontation... "I look for a tree to climb, my heart in my throat. That glimpse of the rolling humped back and the wild, wild eyes is all I get before the bear's flight takes it down to a wooded ravine and away..." Bass eloquently describes the pristine mountain meadows, the icy streams, the old-growth forests and the men who seek to preserve them. His account is about friendship, commitment, and love of the outdoors as much as it is about bears. YAs interested in the environment, in wildlife preservation, and in adventure in the natural world will find this book exciting and informative.?Molly Connally, Kings Park Library, Fairfax County, VA
