Sale price$17.00

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. 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 Mum 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.
