Reviews

"Peacock is a wonderful writer, a naturalist with a novelist's sensitivity and eye. I found myself holding my breath at the close encounters he relates." --Chicago Tribune "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. I cannot imagine that a more worthwhile book will be printed this year." --Jim Harrison "Grizzly Years is an exciting natural history and, more important, a striking metaphor in its impassioned outcry against senseless waste of life on earth--human life included. " --Peter Matthiessen "Grizzly Years belongs to a genre of literature written for the soul. Doug Peacock writes with great heart, eloquence, and verge. He calls for a revolution of the spirit through an immersion in the natural world. I believe him, he is trustworthy. This book does not lie." --Terry Tempest Williams "It's been a long time since I've enjoyed a book so much. It is the saga of one man's spiritual rebirth through contact with wild nature and the primitive American landscape. Like Peter Matthiessen, Peacock writes about the natural world with a novelist's eye and sensibility." --Philip Caputo Peacock is a wonderful writer, a naturalist with a novelist's sensitivity and eye.
