The Biography of a Grizzly

Ernest Thompson Seton

Book Overview: 

Ernest Thompson Seton was a man with a concern for nature her creatures and an excellent story teller. I could almost feel Wahb, the great grizzly’s pain and frustration as he tried to avoid contact with humans and just be left alone to carry out his bear business.

Book Excerpt: 
. . .Then he smelled some strange animal smell and heard heavy footsteps; and not knowing what else to do, he climbed a tree. Presently a band of great, long-necked, slim-legged animals, taller than his Mother, came by under the tree. He [Pg 33] had seen such once before and had not been afraid of them then, because he had been with his Mother. But now he kept very quiet in the tree, and the big creatures stopped picking the grass when they were near him, and blowing their noses, ran out of sight.

He stayed in the tree till near morning, and then he was so stiff with cold that he could scarcely get down. But the warm sun came up, and he felt better as he sought about for berries and ants, for he was very hungry. Then he went back to the Piney and put his wounded foot in the ice-cold water.


He wanted to get back to the mountains again, but still he felt he must. . . Read More

I listened to this as an audio book on my phone, and at the end found myself in tears because of it's poignancy. Biography of a Grizzly is a heartfelt and also heartbreaking tale of an orphaned cub who grows to learn the wilds of life on his own.

I run in to grizzly bears on the trail sometimes while hiking in Glacier National Park. They always bound off in to the forest as they tend to be solitary creatures. Nevertheless these moments always leave me with a sense of wonder and appreciation for these terrifyingly beautiful creatures.

Fabulous read.

I first read this as "King of the Grizzly's" in grade school, back in the 70's. I recently lost a toe, and it reminded me of the story. It is such a great storey of over coming diversity and hardship, to become the best you can be. To live life to the fullest no matter what life put...more

A light, short read from an interesting perspective.

It would be nice if one of these animal stories had a happy ending once in a while!

The story was great but at some parts it was boring to read

Very good.

It was very entertaining but too short for my liking. Wish it was longer. Recommend to anyone but do not get if hoping for a long book.

This is a great story that combines an Indian legend with adventure in the woods. I found the story fun to read and the author does a great job with the feeling of this story.

Was a cute read, though quite sad
