Synopsis

This graphic novel is a true story about a dramatic encounter between a Grizzly bear and two mountain goats that my friend and I witnessed in the Selkirk Mountain Range above Revelstoke, British Columbia, in September 2015 when we were guests as the Durrand Glacier Chalet. One page is devoted to bear and goat facts and bear awareness reminders.

The Remarkable Story of the Grizzly and the Goats is a one-of-a-kind artesanal  comic book. The simplicity and authenticity of the story is reinforced with useful information about bear awareness and basic facts about mountain goats and Grizzlies.
