A memoir of a summer spent in Yellowstone National Park tells of the diverse group of people encountered by the former Forest Service ranger, who set off on a 140-mile hike to track wolf packs.The fellowa#39;s path of escape was directly at his wife, who simply brandished her umbrella and beat the bear away. ... It begins with a quiet walk on a jeep road thick with snow, where we spot our first grizzly tracks, followed by an icy ford of the outlet at Chain Lakes, all the while massive cutthroat trout ... creating a brisk trade in brake repair for mechanics in Red Lodge. Whatever poetry there is in these tumbles of rock is on many days less meter and rhyme than feral, howling free verse.
