I always enjoy a visit to Ms Meredith's Tempe Crabtree's world. Tempe is a deputy in a sparsely populated area of the California Sierra. She is a non-traditional Native American married to a Christian pastor - and yes, religion does play a part in many of the stories. (One of the things that I respect is the even treatment of the various traditions.) Tempe's life consists of ordinary events both personally and professionally.

Bears with Us is literally what much of this book is about. Bears are coming into people's houses, even schools, looking for food. Other themes include raising teenagers and dementia. All of these become a deputy's business in one or the other way. But don't think that it is all too pastoral. Yes, Tempe's life is that -- until it isn't.
