Montana writer and conservationist Bryce Andrews, author of Badluck Way, returns to Elliott Bay to speak about his new book, Down from the Mountain: The Life and Death of a Grizzly Bear (Houghton Mifflin). "Bryce Andrews' wonderful Down from the Mountain is deeply informed by personal experience and made all the stronger by his compassion and measured thoughts. He outlines clearly the core of a major problem in the rural American West--the disagreement between large predatory animals and invasive modern settlers--without disrespect and without sentimentality. His book is welcome and impressive work." -- Barry Lopez.
