The Bear. A father grieves the death of his wife and raises his daughter so she will know how to survive after he dies. Most readers will be drawn at once into the lives of these survivors, and thanks to Krivak’s lyrical prose, we will walk with them and hunt and fish and struggle. We will feel the cold and smell the mountain and sea. Survival requires harmony with nature, and the girl achieves her place in this world without other people in a way that she never seems lonely or empty. Fans of literary fiction and those who appreciate well-crafted prose are those most likely to enjoy this outstanding novel.
