(1) The Grizzly Bear: the Narrative of a Hunter Naturalist, Historical, Scientific, and Adventurous (2) The Animals and their Story

Abstract

(1) A VERY cordial welcome should be extended to Mr. Wright's intensely interesting volume, which has an exceptional value as embodying the experiences and opinions of a man who has hunted the great bear of the Rocky Mountains at a time when it was more numerous than is at present the case. The author tells us that he was born in New Hampshire in 1856, and that some time after 1883 he commenced bear-hunting during such intervals as could be spared from his business. Later on, in 1889, hunting became his profession, and he was seldom long away from the woods, his trips being sometimes made alone, but more frequently with companions who desired to be initiated into the mysteries of bear-stalking, and were able and willing to pay for the privilege.
