Sid Marty's The Black Grizzly of Whiskey Creek is an evocative and gripping story that speaks to our complex and increasingly combative relationship with the wilderness and its inhabitants.
"Marty's latest, The Black Grizzly of Whiskey Creek, is a work of poetic genius. The book combines the best of hard investigative reporting with the narrative power of the finest literary journalism. It moves along at the clip of a detective story. It's also a daring work of the imagination much of the action unfolds from the perspective of a bear... It's as good as nature writing gets."
-Terry Glavin, author of Waiting for the Macaws and Other Stories from the Age of Extinction
