A gripping graphic novel adaptation of Lauren Tarshis’s bestselling I Survived the Attack of the Grizzlies, 1967, with text adapted by Georgia Ball and art by Berat Pekmezci.
No grizzly has ever killed a human in Glacier National Park before… until tonight. Eleven-year-old Melody Vega and her family come to Glacier every year. Mel loves it here — the beautiful landscapes and wildlife make it easy to forget her real-world troubles. But this year is different. With Mom gone, every moment in the park is a reminder of the past.
Then Mel comes face-to-face with a mighty grizzly. She knows basic bear safety: Don’t turn your back. Don’t make any sudden movements. And most importantly: Don’t run.
That last one is the hardest for Mel; she’s been running from her problems all her life. If she wants to survive tonight, she’ll have to find the courage to face her fear.
Based on the real-life grizzly attacks of 1967, this bold graphic novel tells the story of one of the most tragic seasons in the history of America’s national parks — a summer of terror that forever changed ideas about how grizzlies and humans can exist together in the wild.
