Ralph Young is among the last of his kind. When his generation is gone, there will be no more like him. As a young man, not quite sure what to do with his life, he drifted to Alaska. And there, he discovered what he was meant to do. For nearly 40 years he made his living as an Alaskan sourdough, hunter, big-game guide, commercial fisherman, bounty hunter, trapper, and - eventually - wildlife photographer and writer. He probably knows more about Alaskan brown bears - the coastal grizzlies that are the largest and most fearsome of the grizzly breed - than any man alive. He has encountered thousands of them, literally thousands, and he writes of them with respect grounded in knowledge. Here, for the first time, is the astonishing story of Ralph Young's life. He is known to many readers for his magazine articles, but this is his only book - the only full account of his wilderness experience experiences. Reviewers call it an epic of true adventure and a classic of outdoor literature.
