New From Story Merchant Books: Grizzly Justice by April Christofferson

When Yellowstone backcountry ranger Will McCarroll is fired for breaking the rules one time too many, he disappears into the backcountry to continue his decades-long mission of protecting the park’s wildlife. Will is hell bent on saving a wounded grizzly bear whose fate is all but certain: euthanasia.

In his quest, Will stumbles onto a secret meeting of the Alliance, a political movement determined—at any cost—to force the transfer of public lands into state hands. Blackfeet wolverine biologist Johnny Yellow Kidney has taken a forced hiatus from his work in Glacier National Park to head a project born of a high-profile journalist’s loss from a highway tragedy. The goal: to construct safe highway crossings for Montana’s wildlife. Once again, Johnny and Will’s paths cross, not only through both men’s romantic connection to Yellowstone Magistrate Judge Annie Peacock, but also in each man’s race to save the two- and four-leggeds they’ve sworn to protect. Time is running out in Yellowstone Country—and for Will, Johnny, and those they’ve dedicated their careers to defending, the stakes couldn’t be higher.

“A gorgeous book. Grizzly Justice is a riveting read, the majesty and magic of its landscapes and wildlife illuminating every page. I couldn’t put the book down and closed the last page with a deep sense of gratitude for our national parks and profound respect for those who fight to protect them. This book will bring transformational awareness to its readers. It certainly did for me.”
