Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Casey Anderson, the host of National Geographic's 'Expedition Wild' met a month-old bear cub, whom he affectionately named Brutus, in a wildlife preserve in 2002. The cub was destined to remain in captivity or, more likely, to be euthanized, due to overpopulation at the preserve. Anderson just could not let that happen to little Brutus, who looked like 'a fuzzy Twinkie.' From the beginning, it was clear something special existed between the two...'The story of Brutus' proves that love and friendship know no bounds and that every care must be taken to protect one of nature's noblest creatures."

    "Anderson, host of National Geographic's Expedition television series, began his wildlife education at age 5 by catching grasshoppers and befriending muskrats. By the age of 26, he was an experienced wildlife curator eager to save a surplus grizzly cub named Brutus from euthanization by raising the cub in his home. Although Brutus now weighs more than 800 pounds and lives in a wild-animal park, Anderson is still the grizzly's close buddy, training him for educational programs and television shows. In this quick-reading memoir, Anderson recounts eight happy years with Brutus and relates his concerned observations about bears in the wild. Unlike Jim Cole, author of Blindsided (2010), Anderson has never been seriously injured by a bear despite the risks that he takes. "Don't do this at home" is a frequent reminder in this entertaining book." Copyright 2010 Booklist Reviews.
