Convincing tour of recovery from Vietnam through the balms of the U.S.'s wildest places and beasts. Just enough personal to fully engage. Hints of his expertise as a naturalist and paleontologist. My book was a lousy copy printed POD. Is there another full life memoir in the man? ( )

This was a thoroughly enjoyable book combining Peacock's decades long study and filming of grizzlies in their natural habitats with his personal journey of healing and self-understanding - - a have to read that brought greater understanding of our (Annette's and my) encounter with a grizzly while hiking in Glacier National Park in Montana. Learn more about the author in an July/August 2002 article, Q&A Grizzlies http://www.nationalgeographic.com/adventure/0007/q_n_a.html by T. Chamberlain, from National Geographic Adventure. Note that journalist, author Andrea and Doug Peacock are married. (lj) ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0805045430, Paperback)

Doug Peacock, the model for the George Hayduke of Edward Abbey's novels The Monkey Wrench Gang and Hayduke Lives!, served two tours of duty in Vietnam as a Green Beret medic, ministering to the Montagnard and Hre peoples of the highlands while trying to jump over the bullets that rang around him. When he returned home, as he writes, "I retreated to the woods and pushed my mind toward sleep with cheap wine." In those woods he found grizzly bears, and among them he shook off memories of war. In the pages of this memoir, recounting what has now been Peacock's many years among them, the bears of Montana come to life. They find an eloquent protector here.
