Enjoy this trailer for my new book "Grizzlies of Pilgrim Creek, An Intimate Portrait of 399, the Most Famous Bear of Greater Yellowstone." It is a hair-raising tale involving the life and death struggle of Jackson Hole Grizzly 399 and her extended family of cubs. Considered the most famous bear in the modern world, 399 provides a lens for contemplating federal plans to remove the iconic Greater Yellowstone grizzly population from protection under the Endangered Species Act and accompanying state plans to re-commence a trophy sport hunt of grizzlies after a cease-fire lasting 40 years. "Grizzlies of Pilgrim Creek" features 150 astounding images by renowned American wildlife photographer Thomas Mangelsen.
