The heart-warming story of the incredible friendship between National Geographic star Casey Anderson and an 800-pound grizzly bear named Brutus, as seen on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Animal Planet, and Good Morning America.Casey Anderson, the host of National Geographic’s Expedition Grizzly, met a month-old bear cub in a wildlife preserve in 2002, whom he affectionately named Brutus. Little Brutus was destined to remain in captivity or, more likely, even euthanized due to overpopulation at the preserve. Anderson, already an expert in animal rescue and rehabilitation, just could not let that happen to Brutus, who looked like a "fuzzy Twinkie." From the beginning it was clear something special existed between the two. And so, Anderson built the Montana grizzly encounter in Bozeman, Montana, especially for Brutus, so that he, and others like him, could grow up "being a bear." And so the love story began.

Casey Anderson is a naturalist, animal rescue and rehabilitation expert, and the host of National Geographic’s Expedition Grizzly. He has produced and trained animals in more than fifteen films and documentaries and runs the Montana grizzly exchange in Bozeman, Montana. He is married to actress Missi Pyle and the two split their time between Montana and Los Angeles.From Publishers Weekly:
There's no denying Anderson's enthusiasm for--and empathy with--the Montana grizzly bears to which he has dedicated his life. An animal rescue and rehabilitation expert and host of National Geographic's Expedition series, the author connected with the natural world as a young boy on wilderness treks with his mountain man father, honing tracking skills and developing an intuitive sense of how to react in encounters with the likes of snakes, bears, mountain lions, and wolves. In his 20s he adopted a grizzly bear cub he named Brutus, who provides no shortage of sweet and scary anecdotes. The author refutes "bearanoia"--man's unfounded fear, fueled by ignorance and hysteria, of a generally "solitary, shy creature" that would rather not attack humans. The book's plea for coexistence with the wilderness is both emotionally heartfelt and factually fascinating, but clumsy prose hobbles the fervent message.
