Adams had passed through such curious and fascinating experiences that Mr. Hittell determined to write a book about such an unusual bear hunter. And my answer would have been, 'The Adventures of James Capen Adams, Grizzly Bear Hunter of California

Adams had passed through such curious and fascinating experiences that Mr. In consequence, for a year and a half, by tacit arrangement, the author visited the animal show each afternoon after the newspaper went to press, and listened to the hunter's tale. And my answer would have been, 'The Adventures of James Capen Adams, Grizzly Bear Hunter of California. Hittell has succeeded in giving us in Adams a picture of a simple, sincere, lovable hunter, who could not prevent his feeling moved at the spectacle of a mother bear or panther playing with her young.

This is the story of James Capen Adams, a mountain man born in 1807 who brought grizzlies to the city of San Francisco, and then New York, for exhibition. But Adams was not simply a showman; he had a deeper connection with the animals. While living in the mountains with the grizzlies, he tamed and trained them. He was even able to use the great bears as willing pack animals.

John "Grizzly" Adams (also known as James Capen Adams and Grizzly Adams) (1812–1860) was a famous California mountain man and trainer of grizzly bears and other wild animals he captured for menageries, zoological gardens and circuses. Grizzly Adams was of English ancestry. Born and raised in Medway, Massachusetts, a suburb of Boston, he received little to no education. Adams began as an apprentice in the footwear manufacturing industry at age fourteen.

An excellent +150 year old book. Not for fans of the SPCA. The last page is spiritual.

an increadible glimpse into what i consider the most striking man of that historical time period.a man far removed from hunting laws , political correctness, peta,animal rights,etc. he did alot of killing of creatures, but cared and even loved these animals more than the "animal lovers" of today could ever profess themselves to be. he was a believer in the creator as a sovereign, and understood gods appointment to man over the animal kingdom. he was a man of what seems to be at times reckless courage and bravery in the face of grave danger, to the point the indians in the area were in awe of him.they called him the "great white hunter", but he would down play that title and just call his skill "common sense". his ability to traverse hundred of miles of mountian ranges and deserts,with not only himself to take care of but the careful watch over his animals and the other men with him make an incridible read. lewis and clark are lucky adams came after them. quite a man indeed. ive read this book many times and it still delivers exciting reading. every hunter since adams should read this book and feel very still if they are honest.----t.p.s.

Ah here's one...a book which if I was stuck with it on a desert island, I still wouldn’t read it, “The Adventures of James Capen Adams, Mountaineer and Grizzly Bear Hunter of California.” I believe I would eat this book before I read it.
