Not since 'Jaws' Peter Benchley's blockbuster hit of 1974 has there been an adventure like 'The Bear Hunter.' Set in the Alaska wilderness during the spring bear season the story unfolds with one of the great Alaska brown bears emerging from its winter hibernation. In the powerful tradition of Jack London this tale of struggle and tragedy centers around two hunting parties who venture to the cold north in pursuit of the elusive carnivore. With insight and deep emotion the story is as much about the strong bond between father and son as it is about the taking of game.
