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 enlightened my kids 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. I also enjoyed learning about the roachback bear. I had never heard of those before.

This is a mighty fast read.
