Taken By Bear in Yellowstone: More than a Century of Harrowing Encounters Between Grizzlies and Humans

Unique in this literature because it presents

• victim and witness interviews
• official reports
• "statements" from officials and witnesses
• even the “radio logs” from transmissions between rangers
Each incident is told from the victim’s point of view.

Aguahega: a novel of Acadia National Park

What happens to the family Beal when their island home becomes a "summer place" for wealthy Americans, and then a national park? Three generations of Beal women test the limits of their traditional roles, wanting the once close-knit community of Maine's Aguahega Island and also the wider world into which the summer people disappear each fall.
