The Edge of Eden: Living With Grizzlies

Finally, after a long wait and many attempts to acquire a copy of this film, The Edge of Eden: Living With Grizzlies, a documentary showcasing the work of Charlie Russell after the events he wrote about in Grizzly Heart, has been made available online. The film is fascinating and some of what's shown onscreen will be discussed in future blog posts. You can watch the film here:

Currently I'm spending time in Fairbanks, Alaska with no internet connection aside from public wifi hotspots, resulting in a lack of blog updates. Fortunately I do have a few ideas I want to work on, so you can expect new posts and topics to be coming soon!


  1. GRRRRRRR I spent 2 months trying to download this documentary, finally got to 88% completion. And NOW it's online.....

    Anyways, thanks a lot! Honestly, I don't even know when would I ever be able to watch this documentary if not for you :)

  2. Glad I could help you out by posting it! I'd spent forever searching for it and never could even find info on how to obtain a copy. I was pretty happy to discover that it had finally been posted online.

  3. I am a big fan of Grizzlies and Charlie Russell's work. I too greatly enjoyed the documentary.

    I look forward to your future blog posts.

    Cheers !!!

  4. Thanks for stopping by! I checked out your blog and am happy to hear you're reading Grizzly Heart. That is one of the finest books I have ever read! Hope you enjoy it!

  5. Thanks for visiting my blog !!!

    Can you recommend any other great books on Grizzlies/Brown bears..

    Cheers !

  6. Smiling Bears by Else Poulsen is one of the most important and eye-opening books, though not solely about grizzlies.

    I also like The Grizzly Bear by Thomas McNamee, In the Presence of Grizzlies by Doug and Andrea Peacock, The Beast That Walks Like Man by Harold McCracken, and Grizzly Wars by David Knibb. There are several more that I haven't gotten around to reading yet.

  7. Thanks Chris.

    Your help is most appreciated :)
