Doug Peacock has written about his grizzly bears with a passionate and unguarded heart.

Doug Peacock has written about his grizzly bears with a passionate and unguarded heart. Grizzly Years is ultimately a love story about a man who returns from war shorn of his soul, and recovers his soul through his efforts to study and protect the grandest predator on earth, Ursus horribilis. Winner of Foreword Magazine's 2006 Gold Award for Nature Book of the Year! In The Essential Grizzly, Doug and Andrea Peacock argue that the conservation of big, wild, sometimes dangerous animals is of absolute importance to modern humans, to the survival of our own species, and for rational thought.

Doug Peacock has taught me a lot about how to deal with the wily griz – be humble, talk to him respectfully, and don't sing country western. The Peacocks' new book is an essential read for anyone who wants to get into the mind of these alpha predators. In this much praised work, previously published as The Essential Grizzly, Doug and Andrea Peacock explore the wide-ranging relationship between humans and grizzlies through interviews with biologists, mauling victims, hunters, and photographers.

The Essential Grizzly book. Covers all aspects of man/grizzly interactions. Discusses hunting, keeping bears in captivity, meeting up with bears in the wild, training bears for "faked" nature photos/movie use, and the fates of bears that become habituated to humans and human food. Even-handed and thorough. Shows both sides of every conflict.

Doug Peacock was born in Alma, Michigan, and attended the University of Michigan. Doug and Andrea Peacock's new book, The Essential Grizzly: The Mingled Fates of Men and Bears was released on May 1, 2006 (Lyons Press, ISBN 1-59228-848-0). He served as a Green Beret combat medic during the Vietnam War and, upon returning, felt so disillusioned with human society that he sought solace in the beauty of the wilderness. Although he had little scientific background, his passion for and firsthand experience with bears soon brought him recognition as an expert in grizzly behavior.

The Essential Grizzly: The Mingled Fates of Men and Bears by Doug Peacock and Andrea Peacock. Edward Abbey and Doug Peacock had an at-times stormy, almost father and son relationship that was peacefully resolved in Abbey's last days before his death in 1989. In The Essential Grizzly, Doug and Andrea Peacock argue that the conservation of big, wild, sometimes dangerous animals is of absolute importance to modern humans, to the survival of our own species, and for rational thought. This rich recollection of their relationship and the dry places they explored are recalled in Peacock's honest and heartfelt style in this poignant memoir.

The most comprehensive and assiduous chronicle of human-grizzly bear interactions ever written.

Doug Peacock knows more about grizzly bears than the next 10 writers combined. If you want jive-Hollywood-stories, read the other books. If you're interested in the real thing, go for Peacock. And for Edward Abbey fans, Doug's "Walking It Off" is a must read.

Arrived in a timely manner and the book was in excellent condition. Thank you so much. I've wanted this book for a long time and was surprised when I found a used copy. Thanks for taking such good care of it so now another can enjoy!

This book opens your mind to the necessity of the grizzly in our ecosystem. I learned alot about the behaviour and habits of the grizzly and how to prepare yourself in their world. A must read book.

. . a breath of fresh air for those of us interested in bears and their fate. Shake off the heavy coat of mind boggling conflicting advice about how to act in bear country and read Doug Peacock's book. He tells it to you straight. "Don't travel into grizzly country reeking of bad karma or old tuna fish." This book leaves others behind with new knowledge and experiences unwritten to date. Doug and Andrea go straight to the heart of the problems and joys of having gizzlies on earth and exhibit hope that people can learn how to behave before we kill or love all the bears to death.

The book treats the grizzly as the great animals they are - neither teddy bearish or monster. The book generates respect for this amazing animal.

found this book very opinionated, lacking in facts. The authors are incredibly egotistical knocking any efforts to conserve the Grizzly except their own. They contradict themselves several times and throughout the book they are happy to mention the names of not only people they agree with but also the names of people and organizations that are not doing what they think needs to be done. A very terrible book.

The Peacocks bring together some interesting stories in a way I've not seen done before, but their cockamamie, insular "logic" lies somewhere between intellectual dishonesty and sloth, which, for the critical thinker, makes the pages hard to get through. It's too bad; I'd hoped for so much more. Still, worth a skim if you love the bears and where they live.
