3.0 out of 5 stars This is about real life 'Jaws'
If at all a real life story could come close to the super-hit Hollywood movie of the 70s - Jaws - this would be it. I liked reading the tragic events laid out in this book, although I was more upset at the worst kind of conservation practices followed by wardens of National Parks Canada in the early 80s. The best thing I liked about the book is when the author described...

5.0 out of 5 stars Whiskey Creek Grizzly, Oct. 6 2008
As captivating as the best fiction; yet as true as life. The most interesting read I've had in years. A terrific book for anyone keen in the connection with our great outdoors. Thanks Marty!

This review is from: The Black Grizzly of Whiskey Creek (Paperback)
If at all a real life story could come close to the super-hit Hollywood movie of the 70s - Jaws - this would be it. I liked reading the tragic events laid out in this book, although I was more upset at the worst kind of conservation practices followed by wardens of National Parks Canada in the early 80s. The best thing I liked about the book is when the author described the events from the point of view of the bears, specially the two blamed for the incidents.

Unfortunately, having read more recent books like Tiger, K2, Thunder and Sunshine, To the end of the earth, etc. (please see my reviews), I was not able to quite enjoy the writing style and the contents covered in this book. For one, the writer focused narrowly on Canada National Parks Warden Services of early 80s, various inter-personal controversies, and media coverage of the incidents as it panned out at that time. I think a better thing would have been to educate the readers about the history and geography of the area and of the national park(s), and also about the bear behaviour in the wild. Admittedly, this writing style is a more recent phenomena and Sid would not be aware of it.

In any case this is a good book to read to know how conservation practices should not be carried out.
