The Story of Brutus: My Life with Brutus the Bear and the Grizzlies of North America | [Casey Anderson]

The Story of Brutus: My Life with Brutus the Bear and the Grizzlies of North America

Casey Anderson, the host of National Geographic’s Expedition Grizzly, met a month-old bear cub in a wildlife preserve in 2002, whom he affectionately named Brutus. Little Brutus was destined to remain in captivity or, more likely, even euthanized due to overpopulation at the preserve. Anderson, already an expert in animal rescue and rehabilitation, just could not let that happen to Brutus, who looked like a "fuzzy Twinkie."

Audible Editor Reviews

Part memoir and part ode to the natural world, The Story of Brutus centers around Casey Anderson's relationship with a grizzly bear born in captivity. But this audiobook's broader ambition is to inspire a listener's reverence for the wilderness and for the creatures that inhabit it as well as to examine "the braided path of bear and human existence".

Kevin Young performs these unique and gripping stories of grizzly and wolf encounters with a brawny thirst for adventure that would belong in Anderson's native Montana. Listeners might come away from Brutus with an affinity for bears, but after hearing of these close calls and outright attacks, they will surely give the animal a wide, respectful berth.

Publisher's Summary

The heart-warming story of the incredible friendship between National Geographic star Casey Anderson and an 800-pound grizzly bear named Brutus, as seen on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Animal Planet, and Good Morning America.

Casey Anderson, the host of National Geographic’s Expedition Grizzly, met a month-old bear cub in a wildlife preserve in 2002, whom he affectionately named Brutus. Little Brutus was destined to remain in captivity or, more likely, even euthanized due to overpopulation at the preserve. Anderson, already an expert in animal rescue and rehabilitation, just could not let that happen to Brutus, who looked like a "fuzzy Twinkie."

From the beginning it was clear something special existed between the two. And so, Anderson built the Montana grizzly encounter in Bozeman, Montana, especially for Brutus, so that he, and others like him, could grow up "being a bear." And so the love story began.

When together, Anderson and Brutus will wrestle, swim, play, and continue to act as advocates for grizzly protection and education, be it through documentaries like Expedition Grizzly, appearances on Oprah or Good Morning America, or in this inspiring book, which promises to be an intimate look into Anderson's relationship with Brutus and a call to action to protect these glorious animals and the natural world they live in. The Story of Brutus proves that love and friendship know no bounds and that every care must be taken to protect one of nature's noblest creatures.
