Book review: "Grizzly Years" by Doug Peacock

Doug Peacock is a strong descriptive writer, and in "Grizzly Years" he brings the reader along with him as he explores the woods seeking grizzly bears or as he recounts haunting episodes from his Vietnam War days.

But while his stories are usually interesting, they're only occasionally compelling. I never had that can't-put-it-down feeling. Plus, there's only so many ways to describe a hike in the woods, and after awhile Peacock's bear quests begin to sound repetitive.

This may be a book that's better read in small bites, rather than one gulp. Read a chapter or two, then put it down for a month or so. When you're ready to be transported back to the woods, pick it up again.
