One morning in early spring, high in the unforgiving Canadian Rocky Mountains, a young bear gives birth to her first cubs. There are three of them, each hairless, blind, and helpless. Shasta and Her Cubs is the story of that mother's struggles to keep herself and her three cubs alive until they reach maturity. But, working against her are her own inexperience, hungry predators, the jagged landscape, the effects of climate change, and, worst of all, man. The story of Shasta and her cubs' lives is a classic tale of survival from a truly unique perspective. Shasta and Her Cubs is an ambitious, moving, modern story of life and motherhood in a quintessentially northern environment. Written with all the insights of a long-time pediatrician and dedicated outdoorsman, Shasta and Her Cubs is a mature, exciting, and accomplished book for true fans of writing, wildlife, and the wilderness.
