Book cover of Down from the Mountain: The Life and Death of a Grizzly Bear by Bryce Andrewsby Bryce Andrews

“Andrews’ wonderful Down from the Mountain is deeply informed by personal experience and made all the stronger by his compassion and measured thoughts…Welcome and impressive work.” —Barry Lopez

The story of a grizzly bear named Millie: her life, death, and cubs, and what they reveal about the changing character of the American West

The grizzly is one of North America’s few remaining large predators. Their range is diminished, but they’re spreading across the West again. Descending into valleys where once they were king, bears find the landscape they’d known for eons utterly changed by the new most dominant animal: humans. As the grizzlies approach, the people of the region are wary, at best, of their return.
