As it happened, the day I began reading the book, the mailman delivered a letter from an outfitter in northern Wyoming that has twice taken me up into high country, dropped me off and come back a week or so later. The outfitter is a family operation near Moran Junction -- between Jackson and Yellowstone. Its wranglers had insisted that I go armed, for there are many grizzly bears ranging through those mountains. There had been some serious attacks, a few fatal. Although the science of high-intensity pepper sprays -- which I always carry -- has advanced rapidly, the aerosol cans are not universally effective, the outfitters emphasized.

Midway through the xx's set at April's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Annual Festival in Indio, Calif., the London-based trio threw a cover song into its set: Aaliyah's smoldering 1997 single "Hot Like Fire. " Solange, the R&B singer and friend of the xx, joined the band on stage to solidify one of the weekend's standout moments. Guitarist and vocalist Romy Madley Croft, 23, talks modestly about her acclaimed band, but doesn't hesitate to gush about the two R&B singers who helped make the highlight possible.

KHUTZEYMATEEN GRIZZLY BEAR SANCTUARY, British Columbia -- Clouds drift up against steep mountainsides. Eagles ride the updrafts overhead. Otters and seals backstroke alongside a rare sailboat gliding by. The only other signs of humanity are the occasional fluorescent orange buoys marking the prawn traps of commercial fishermen.And then the largest grizzly bear in the neighborhood emerges from the tangle of spruce, hemlock and huckleberry and onto a beach alongside the river.Biologists who study this area have named him Buffalo, and from the safety of a quarter-mile offshore, he does look as big as a bison.

The National Park Service is allowing the grizzly who killed a defenseless hiker to continue to mingle with more potential victims ("Yellowstone: Grizzly left alone after fatal attack," July 8). This is a subtle way to divert blame from the Park Service to the victim. The statement that it's the first fatal mauling in the park since 1986, while technically correct, is misleading. Less than one year ago, a person was killed and two injured by a grizzly in a campground near Yellowstone National Park, according to the Huffington Post . The Park Service seems reluctant to accurately represent the danger and take action.

After a 30-year struggle, grizzlies are multiplying throughout Yellowstone National Park as another top predator -- the gray wolf -- has helped build the bear population in a surprising way. The numbers tell the success of grizzly bear restoration: About 650 bears roam the Yellowstone region today -- up from roughly 200 when the animal was first protected under the Endangered Species Act in 1975 -- and bears have expanded their range by 40 percent, says...

Brooks Paternotte's academic experience goes beyond the classroom, and even includes an angry grizzly bear. Paternotte became official head of the middle school at Boys' Latin School, which straddles the Baltimore city-county line, in December when his "interim" title was dropped. So Monday to Friday, September to June, Paternotte spends his days budgeting, scheduling and working with pupils, teachers and parents. But on the weekends and in the summer, Paternotte seeks refuge from the stresses of daily life in extreme outdoor adventures including climbing giant ice rocks, trekking through rivers and going days with little food.

SELWAY-BITTERROOT WILDERNESS, Idaho -- Old-timers never strolled here as people do now, heedless and blithe through head-high huckleberries.Back when this wilderness was truly wild, a prudent traveler passed here like a soldier walking point. A blur of tawny motion, a rustling sound, might be the only warning:Grizzly bear.A quarter-ton of muscle, scythe-shaped claws and racehorse speed. Near-sighted eyes, sharp nose and sharper wits. To stumble on a grizzly in these canyons was to know, with pounding heart, what it meant to be at a stronger creature's mercy.

A MEMORABLE PLACE Yellowstone, with grizzly By Scott Krieger SPECIAL TO THE SUN In early May, my wife and I drove across the country with our daughter to Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. Kelly had just finished her junior year at Mary Washington College in Fredericksburg, Va., and was eager to get to her new summer home, job and adventure at Mammoth Hot Springs in the northern region of the park. Already suffering from severe separation anxiety, we wanted to spend what little time we could with our first-born child before relinquishing her to the park concessionaire and a new set of friends for the ensuing three months.

Tony Mack of Owings Mills notched his 100th career wrestling victory in an emphatic fashion this month. The 160-pound senior pinned his Franklin opponent in 1 minute, 12 seconds. "Tony's wrestled for me since he was 4 years old, when I had him in the rec program," Eagles coach Guy Pritzker said. "He's probably the toughest kid you'll ever see and also the nicest kid. He's been like a grizzly bear for us this year. "I'd say he's a role model for everybody. I've never heard Tony complain in 13 years of coaching him, and I'm serious about that.

A Memorable Place Alaska's mesmerizing grizzlies By Kate Warner SPECIAL TO THE SUN Alaska was a dream vacation for my significant other, Glenn Hopkins, and me. For about two weeks last summer, we experienced one of the most beautiful and vast wildernesses on earth. Our 49th state was everything we hoped it would be. We took the Alaska Marine Highway ferry to Skagway, where many gold rushers had set out to seek their fortunes. Then we drove the Golden Circle, a 360-kilometer road to Haines that provides many scenic views and plenty of photo opportunities.

NEW YORK - As Hubie Brown was holding court with reporters before a game against the New York Knicks last week at Madison Square Garden, an old friend popped his head into the middle of the scrum. "We're still foolin' 'em," Brown said in his famous raspy staccato. In the case of Brown's latest reclamation project, the Memphis Grizzlies, he's also beatin' 'em. With an overall record of 48-26, including an NBA-best 23-5 since Feb. 1, the Grizzlies have made the quantum leap from laughable to respectable to remarkable since Brown took over an 0-8 team early last season.

Lost in the distortions, lies, grandstanding and demagoguery that have replaced reasoned discourse in the fight over the reauthorization of the Endangered Species Act is the opportunity for a serious public debate over one of the most disappointing realities of endangered-species policy in this country.According to recent studies, 55 percent of all state and federal money spent on endangered species goes to only 10 species, at least half of which are in no real danger of extinction. Meanwhile, there are hundreds of species for which we do not even have a recovery plan, many on the verge of disappearing forever.
