Overcoming Bears

Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
A story about the exhilaration of living in nature's remote places, the generosity and wisdom of some of North America's forgotten people, the horror of war and ultimately, how love and remorse can lead to insight.

Review by: Bev on Dec. 2, 2013 :
Posted on behalf of Ken Christopherson. "I just finished reading "Overcoming Bears" by Willow Alber and had to write to tell you how enjoyable the read was. As a Canadian who has lived from coast to coast I was able to envision the locals that Willow describes in her work. I am currently living in Saskatchewan, right on the Montana border, so her comments on the Kalispell area were also easily recognizable.
Her insights into generational family dynamics made the book hard to put down and illustrated that everyone has "bears" to overcome.
I surely hope there is a sequel coming as there is a lot more of this story to be told.
Please encourage Willow to keep up the good work."
