Grizzly Attack in Colorado:  
The Ed Wiseman Story

On September 23, 1979, Ed Wiseman was attacked by a grizzly bear in a remote area of Colorado.

He tried curling up and playing dead, but when that did not deter the bear, he stabbed it with a hand-held arrow, mortally wounding it.

He then spent the night on this hillside, waiting for a rescue helicopter. His story does not end there.

Author Deb Carpenter-Nolting was a college student at the time of the attack. Ed was a family friend and she decided his story should be more widely known. The book has been a work in progress for 34 years.

The detailed account of this harrowing battle with the last grizzly in Colorado is now available in print. 

The book is available for sale at The Sisters Grimm bookstore in Bushnell, Nebraska.
