The brutal shooting of a bear cub galvanises ecologist Callis MacArthur into becoming an activist. She dares to dream of bears roaming wild and free again, even in Scotland. But with the authorities blocking her path at every step, she has no choice but to take increasingly radical steps if her dream is ever to become a reality. As Callis begins to embrace the wild side of her nature, she finds herself swept up in powerful new emotions that compel her to risk her career, her friendships and her whole way of life.
With a combination of lyrical prose, mythical themes, romance and a cracking plot, Bear Witness pulls off the rare feat of being a page-turner with a heart and a mind. Audio recording and editing by Blake Brooks.
