    If you enjoy nature and animals this is an awesome book This was my father s book from when he was a kid one of the only two he ever voluntarily read the other being Old Yeller if you re wondering I m glad I did not get his attitude towards reading Just wait until the movie comes out The horror Anyways, this a true story of a man who is living by himself who adopts three bear cubs He tries to raise them so they will be dependent of people and can one day go back into nature and live by themselves He teaches them to forage for food, escape danger, and other necessities This book will desperately make you want a bear as a pet They seem so friendly, playful and lovable If I can one day ride in a canoe with bear cubs with me my life will be complete Robert was a man who truly enjoyed and appreciated nature We need men like him in the world today He gives a lot of details about daily life with the bears and I actually learned a lot while reading this too along with reading about his personal connections with each bear and other animals in nature Overall it is a very heartwarming book.

    An interesting story of a man who assumes the responsibility for looking after 3 orphaned cubs and trying to train them to look after themselves in the wilds of British Columbia.To some people, some actions in this book might seem unbelievable But we are dealing with a man who, although a University student from California, was raised by a Native American father who taught him much about nature and animals He intuitively learned to read animals He had a compassion for all wildlife and refused to own a rifle until the very end of this three year adventure That meant that he dealt with all animals, including serious predators, even boars male bears and eagles which wanted the cubs for dinner by using his knowledge of these animals to protect both the cubs and himself from attack Much of this success came from his understanding of territorial behavior In other words, he was not perceived as a threat by these animals When the cubs eventually matured, they were able to understand and maintain their own territory Whether he was rescuing baby birds before a forest fire or rescuing these bears, he knew his environment so well that he was able to teach them to exist on their own in this environment The birds eventually migrated but returned to breed in the same location and interacted with him without fear.Sadly, his ability to relate to the bears and provide for them was the cause of their failure Although his intent was to teach them to be independent and then to release them into the wild, a bond formed with him that was unbreakable They sadly believed all humans to be like him, in an area where most human encounters were with bear hunters.The inevitable result was disaster for the bears and for his heart.If you can get past the emotional impact of his story, you can see how the best intentions and sacrifices of a human to intervene in the life of a wild creature are usually a failure Despite counsel and even aggression from the native Americans of the area to not raise the bears, he chose to listen to his heart instead of to the counsel of generations of wisdom in dealing with animals I read this book decades ago, and I recently read it again It describes a part of the north that no longer exists and is also interesting from an historical perspective.It is not a light read But it is worth reading.

    A very well written book of the north country, wildlife, nature, and of course, black bears I felt that I was there in that log cabin with the three bears It hit home with me, that all wild critters have personality, sensitivity, and and purpose And then contrast that with some humans that are heavy handed, insensitive and so easily squeeze that trigger As John Prine says, some humans just ain t human.

    A simple book garners a simple review A wonderful yarn of a man raising three bear cubs in the wilderness of British Columbia Filled with detailed imagery of Canadian flora and fauna, this story made me laugh, cry, and yearn for a cabin in which i could chop wood and drink whiskey by the fire with three rambunctious cubs of my own The narrative style is poetic, simple, and mirrors that of Ron Swanson.

    A story of the adoption of three Black Bear cubs, taking place in the north reach of Babine Lake, east of Smithers, British Columbia. The author tries to raise them to return to the wild by teaching them how to forage for food and deal with predators In the end, one bear is shot by a hunter and another is killed by a grizzly, but the third is taken by a native friend to live in an even remote part of British Columbia.Many interesting observations including the apparent chagrin experienced by the bears when a joke was played on them While the author taught them to forage, once they matured he was unable to keep up with the large distances they covered each day When winter came, the bears reduced their food intake to almost nothing Leslie kept the cabin much cooler, and the bears entered their winter sleep naturally.Strangely, there appears to be no biographical information on Leslie, although the many observations within the narrative show that he had a detailed knowledge of the B.C forests and their inhabitants He was a close friend of a number of the local natives, and seemed to have benefited from their knowledge.

    I enjoyed this story It was a little disturbing for me to read about the fire and the other animals waiting on the island for the weaker animals to come over I understand thought that that s how the circle of life is Sad ending also I wish it had worked out better.

    4.5I loved this book I love bears, and I really wanted to read about a guy who kind of adopted them, and I wasn t disappointed after I read it It s just so heartfelt and full of emotions I liked that the book told us about the customs and behaviours of the bears, I got to know so many pieces of brand new information, and I liked it the author wrote a lot about his connection to the bears, rather than just throwing a bunch of cool and funny stories together.What I wasn t too keen on were the superfluous, and for it s genre, in my opinion too superfluous landscape descriptions and writing for pages about animals and their customs, which had nothing to do with the bears at all For me, well, it wasn t marketed as a story about bears plus the landscape , so I didn t understand some remarks about random animals in that area.

    My Dad read this book to me when I was a young teen A very moving story and emotionally well written It moved me for a long time.Now I have to say I don t think it was a totally true account of his life with the bears First off he said he was a gold miner and what he wrote about gold was so far off the mark it made me question other details about the book I don t think he got near gold mining In one place as I recall he made mention of a place with huge amounts of gold but it was to remote to haul it out I don t buy it.Enjoy the book but don t bet your life that everything he wrote was true.
