In 1990 Schooler met Japanese photographer Michio Hoshino and began a profound friendship forged by a love of adventure and cemented by their mutual obsession with finding the elusive glacier bear, an exceedingly rare creature, seldom seen and shrouded in legend. But it was only after Hoshino's tragic death from a bear attack that Schooler succeeded in photographing the animal - and only then that he Was able to complete his journey and find new meaning in his own life.

Lynn Schooler is one of America's great living authors. His work, set in Alaska, is beautifully crafted. Schooler and Hoshino spent more than a decade looking for such a bear and their friendship grew and flourished during that time. In reading this book there are many times when one has simply to stop and re-read a sentence or whole paragraph to enjoy the beauty of such crystal clear writing and structure. As you follow Schooler and Hoshino through their ventures, you are treated to wonderful stories about Alaska from millions of years ago to the modern age.

Lynn Schooler is one of America's great living authors. His work, set in Alaska, is beautifully crafted. In reading this book there are many times when one has simply to stop and re-read a sentence or whole paragraph to enjoy the beauty of such crystal clear writing and structure. I often wonder, "How many hours did he labor to get exactly the right combination of nouns, adjectives, verbs, and adverbs to make this master construction of a sentence?" The Blue Bear is non-fiction at its best. It tells of the friendship between the author and a Japanese nature photographer, Michio Hoshino. Hoshino wants to get a picture of a rare glacier bear or blue bear. Schooler and Hoshino spent more than a decade looking for such a bear and their friendship grew and flourished during that time. As you follow Schooler and Hoshino through their ventures, you are treated to wonderful stories about Alaska from millions of years ago to the modern age. You can come to understand a lot about Alaska and what brings fascination to so many people by the largest of US states. I have been traveling to Alaska for over a decade in pursuit of salmon and halibut. I have traveled over a bit of the waters of Southeast Alaska - they are so huge that it would takes months, if not years, to explore them all. The Blue Bear will be with me on all forthcoming trips so that I can dip into it to enhance my understanding of and love for Alaska. But the value of the book with respect to Alaska is only a portion of what a reader will receive. The book is really about life and renewal, about seeking and losing, about loving and needing, and much more. Please read this book. You will be forever grateful you did.

Every so often you come across a writer whose stories come across so effortlessly, that it's like you are sitting down with an old friend you have known all your life. Lynn is such a writer. His stories are beautiful, engaging, and penetrating.

If you love stories of mountains, seas, bears, and Alaska, this book is a great choice. Lynn's intelligence and humility gives his stories an extra layer of polish and depth that makes this book all the more enjoyable.

I picked up the Blue Bear right after I finished reading Walking Home, Lynn's other book. I would highly recommend that as well.

It's been a year since I read both these books, and I just searched him to see if he had written any more, which is when I decided to write this review (his stories will remain with you for a long time).

Schooler covers quite a bit of territory in this tight book. I enjoyed the accompanying map that I could use to follow all his adventures. His writing, above all else, is honest and at times gut-wrenching. Many of the awful experiences he suffers through are relatable. If anyone has ever unexpectedly lost a loved one, for whatever reason, can relate to the personal devastation he goes through. On the other hand he survives. This book is intimately involved about that survival. It's also about the art of the naturalist photographer and the endless beauty of the inland-passage of Alaska. I couldn't put this book down.

Very enjoyable read about friendships, adventure, love and loss. Captivated me and lost sleep for a couple of days until I finished it. Of course, when it was finished, I wanted MORE! Excellent job.

Lynn, what an amazing story. You have an amazing gift, and I'm so glad that you decided to share it with the world. I'm a full time professional photographer and absolutely loved everything about this book.

What an amazing read! Lynn has a way of telling a story that keeps you involved. His descriptions make me feel as if I were there. He has put so much heart and soul as well as knowledge into this book that I feel like I was entering into another reality. Great job! I want to read his other books now!

I only read half the book - not sure why I didn't finish it. If you appreciate wild landscapes you would like this book.
An interesting Alaskan adventure told from the perspective of a guide taking visitors, including a famous photographer, into the back country.
