Montana's Doug Peacock - The Grizzly Man's Last Stand By Rick Bass

May 12, 2017View for printing

The Crazy Mountains glow snow-clad behind us, and there are so many stars it feels as if we are walking through a meadow of them, or a field of fireflies. Soon the red lip of the sun appears, a small fiery corona surrounded by black. Peacock stares at it. On the small ridge ahead, a trophy white-tailed buck, a king, comes walking down out of the darkness as if summoned by the intensity of Peacock's stare.

"Doug is a real hero to me. He is the complete American renegade hero -- outraged, badass, and deeply, unshakably moral. I've never met anyone quite like him. We should all wage life with a purpose so pure." author Carl Hiaasen
