The authors lived with grizzly bears in their close environs for seven years in Kamchatka, including a trio of cubs adopted from a zoo, in order to demonstrate that grizzlies and humans could co-exist in close quarters if interactions were grounded in respect and trust. They primarily let the 175 color photographs of Enns make the case, as they depict humans and bears in close enough proximity to literally shake hands, as well as many other aspects of grizzly life.Book News, Inc.®, Portland, OR --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.  
Praise for Grizzly Heart: 
It's not often that a few individuals set out to overthrow an entire body of beliefs, but we have only to consider the history of animals such as the gorilla and the killer whale, and the relatively new view humanity holds of those animals as engaging social creatures, to see that Russell and Enns?s work may do the same for bears as well.? -- The Globe and Mail  
Book Description 
A spectacular journey into the heart of bear country, with more than 175 full-colour photographs, from the authors of Grizzly Heart. The moments of unexpected communion they've captured on film will change the way you think about bears forever. 
What if the thought of encountering a grizzly bear filled you with anticipation and wonder? What if you knew a bear her whole life, and the bear treated you as a welcome friend whenever you visited? What if bears themselves could be free to live as they were meant to, enjoying nature's splendour and not fearful of gun-bearing humans? 
Not everyone can live the dream, but at least two people (and many more bears) have. For seven years, renowned naturalist Charlie Russell and his partner, artist Maureen Enns, have spent summers in the remote wilderness of Kamchatka, Russia. Home to the densest population of brown bears in the world, the region is also home to Russell and Enns's unprecedented first-hand study of the kinds of relationships that can exist between bears and humans. 
The authors' first book together, Grizzly Heart, told the unforgettable story of their work with Kamchatka's brown bears. Now comes Grizzly Seasons, a stunning array of photographs of these captivating and elusive creatures. Central to their project are three bear cubs -- rescued by Russell and Enns from a squalid Russian zoo -- who are reintroduced to the wild and allowed to grow into the wild animals they were meant to be. We also meet other bears face-to-face, who over the years have come to accept, and at times even embrace, the couple's presence.
