Grizzly Heart is the remarkable account of how, for the past seven years, Charlie Russell and Maureen Enns have defied the preconceptions of wildlife officials and the general public by living unthreatened - and respected - among the grizzly bears on Russia's rugged and glorious Kamchatka Peninsula. At the core is the story of the couple's adoption of three bear cubs and how they helped teach these cubs to survive in the wild. Their project demonstrates that it is possible to forge a respectful relationship with these majestic giants, and provides persuasive reasons for altering our ideas about bears.
