Description

No grizzly has ever killed a human in Glacier National Park before...until tonight.

Eleven-year-old Melody Vega and her family come to Glacier every year. Mel loves it here  - the beautiful landscapes and wildlife make it easy to forget her real-world troubles. But this year is different. With Mom gone, every moment in the park is a reminder of the past. Then Mel comes face-to-face with a mighty grizzly. She knows basic bear safety: Don't turn your back. Don't make any sudden movements. And most importantly: Don't run.

That last one is the hardest for Mel; she's been running from her problems all her life. If she wants to survive tonight, she'll have to find the courage to face her fear. Based on the real-life grizzly attacks of 1967, this bold graphic novel tells the story of one of the most tragic seasons in the history of America's national parks - a summer of terror that forever changed ideas about how grizzlies and humans can exist together in the wild.
