The Biography of a Grizzly (version 2)

Read by Phil Chenevert

(4.9 stars; 7 reviews)

Wahb (meaning White Bear) is an orphaned Grizzly Bear who learns to respect his fears, fight for peace, and trust the healing powers of a stinky hot-spring. The story is aptly titled The Biography of a Grizzly because it is about the life of a Grizzly. Seton writes with a folksy tone that will enlighten children to the gore and war that Grizzly Bears endure. I thought it was fun to learn (through Wahb's story) about their life span, their diet, their ability to survive gunshots and bear-traps. Beautifully written, the author captures each moment in a way that you almost feel as though you're in the story. If a bear had the ability to write his story, in short, a legacy, this would surely be one that "bears" repeating (phil chenevert and Wikipedia) (1 hr 35 min)

PC picks another winner

(5 stars)

I have a BS in wildlife management and MS in field biology. This was entertaining and a good story from a well-known outdoor author and artist. Although Seton and others were chastised for sentimentental "Bambi" style writings, his commitment to nature and appreciation of the outdoors cannot be questioned.

Ha ha!

This story is excellent. And even though I am the reader of this version, I think it an excellent listen and don't hesitate to give it 5 stars.
