Death in the Grizzly Maze: The Timothy Treadwell Story

Death in the Grizzly Maze: The Timothy Treadwell Story Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On the afternoon of Sunday, October 5, 2003, in Alaska's Katmai National Park, one or more brown bears killed and ate Timothy Treadwell and his girlfriend, Amie Huguenard. The next day, park rangers investigating the site shot and killed two bears that threatened them; it was later determined that one of the bears had human flesh and clothing in its stomach.

This chilling story immediately captured worldwide media attention, not only because of the horrific manner of Timothy and Amie's deaths, but also because Timothy was a well-known wildlife celebrity. His films of close-up encounters with grizzly bears — he spent more than a dozen summers living with and videotaping giant bears in the Alaskan bush — were the subject of television talk shows, movies, and books.

But his work was not without controversy, and some bear experts felt that Treadwell's fatal encounter was a tragedy waiting to happen — the result of the unorthodox tactics he used in his life among the bears.

Death in the Grizzly Maze is the compelling account of Treadwell's intense life and dramatic death. Author Mike Lapinski chronicles Treadwell's rise from self-described alcoholic loser to popular grizzly-bear advocate. Lapinski explores how a waiter from Malibu, California, with no background in biology or wildlife science, came to be considered a bear expert. And he reveals the high cost of the current craze for wildlife celebrities — and what it means for the future of wildlife conservation.

Book News Annotation:
