About the Author
Jeff Gailus has spent hundreds of hours observing grizzlies and guiding people through bear habitat. His poignant journalism and commitment to conservation have earned him a Doris Duke Conservation Fellowship, a Story of the Year award from the Associated Collegiate Press and numerous shortlistings and honorable mentions for his magazine writing. He recently received Canada Council for the Arts and Alberta Foundation for the Arts grants to work on Original Griz, an environmental history of the Great Plains grizzly. His follow-up to The Grizzly Manifesto will be a similar volume on wolves, to be published by RMB in Fall 2010.
