It’s so wild to imagine being both bear and pioneer in those days. Both would have felt so very righteous in their claim to the land.
Could my family have found a way to cohabit with the bears on the land they were settling? We can never know all of the details. We can only take their experience at face value, let our hearts race with the harrowing tale, and be grateful for our (some may say) more tame lifestyles of today.
Thanks for your time! ENJOY!
