The Grizzly Mother

The Grizzly Mother is an engaging look at how the animals, people, and seasons within an ecosystem are intertwined.

By Hetxw’ms Gyetxw (Brett D. Huson)
Illustrated by Natasha Donovan

To the Gitxsan people of Northwestern British Columbia, the grizzly is an integral part of the natural landscape. Together, they share the land and forests that the Skeena River runs through, as well as the sockeye salmon within it.

Follow mother bear as she teaches her cubs what they need in order to survive on their own.

The Mothers of Xsan series uses striking illustration and lyrical language to bring the poetry of the Xsan ecosystem to life.

Writing in lyrical prose…Huson eloquently conveys the fragile interconnectedness of the natural world and the moral imperative to protect it.
