The Blue Bear

The Blue Bear

by Lynn Schooler

  • BIOGRAPHY/MEMOIR
  • 2003
  • PAPER
  • 272 PAGES

The wilds of southeast Alaska is the setting for wilderness guide Schooler's elegiac chronicle of his friendship with Japanese photographer Michio Hoshino and their search for the elusive glacier bear. Reminiscent of Matthiessen and Lopez, Schooler evokes with quiet grace the wild archipelagoes, glittering fjords and dense rainforests of Alaska's Glacier Coast, stretching 500 miles between Prince William Sound and Ketchikan.  (ALA357, $13.99)
