Does the grizzly bear still pad its way across the back range of the Rocky Mountains, in the San Juans of Colorado state? David Petersen, a longtime resident, believes that it just might, enduring "like the knapweed in the ditch." In this fine book, he surveys the history of bear-human interactions in these remote but increasingly developed mountains, discussing at length the possibilities of grizzlies being reintroduced in number there. (Among the prime candidates for reintroduction, he suggests, are current zoo inmates.) Petersen's call to protect the last grizzlies is well placed, and it has a humbling message: "By working to save the bear and its tiny wilderness enclaves," he writes, "we are working to save ourselves. If we can't be big enough to accommodate a species as intelligent, magnificent, and manlike as the grizzly, we probably have no chance of long-term survival ourselves." If Petersen's view is correct, we'd better study his words and get to work.
