Bella Coola Man book. Clayton Mack's first book of amazing tales about bears and q'umsciwas (white men), Grizzlies and White Guys, beca When Clayton Mack was a child, his parents wrapped him in wolf skin and dumped him in water four times so he would grow up strong and fierce in the woods like a wolf. True to this Nuxalk tradition, Mack grew up to be a world-famous grizzly bear hunter and guide.

The Mack book is short on Sasquatch stories, devoting only one chapter to the subject, but Mack's grizzly . Chapter Seven begins with Sasquatch sightings seemingly routine if not matter-of-fact to the Bella Coola woodsman

I will confine out-takes from the book to his single chapter on Sasquatch related stories. Chapter Seven begins with Sasquatch sightings seemingly routine if not matter-of-fact to the Bella Coola woodsman. He comes off as rather unflappable throughout, but his adventures, as with the rest of the book, become more interesting with each passing page.

When Clayton Mack was a child, his parents wrapped him in wolf skin and dumped him in water four times so he would grow up strong and fierce in the woods like a wolf. True to this Nuxalk tradition, Mack grew up to be a world-famous grizzly bear hunter and guide.Clayton Mack's first book of amazing tales about bears and q'umsciwas (white men), Grizzlies and White Guys, became an instant best seller when it was published in 1993. In Bella Coola Man, Clayton Mack continues his hair-raising stories about pulling bears out of the bushes by their legs, eating fresh bear meat with Thor Heyerdahl, finding gold nuggets in the bush, murder in the Big Ootsa country and dead men's talking beans, plus Crooked Jaw the Indian agent and where to find good fishing. Clayton Mack was a walking encyclopedia of tribal lore, and one of the best storytellers ever born. The stories in Bella Coola Man are the last he told, and reflect his desire to pass on as much information about Nuxalk life and legends as he could before his death. Hear about the man-eater dance performed at River's Inlet where the dancers ate a dead woman's head, or about the last Indian war on the coast, native remedies like devil's club tea which is "good for anything," Alexander Mackenzie's travels through Bella Coola country along the Grease Trail, how native hunters killed mountain goats by prying them off cliffs with sticks, and about forgotten villages and places, which come alive again through Clayton Mack's words.Clayton Mack had a deep understanding and appreciation of life on British Columbia's rugged coast. His stories are unique lessons in history, as well as pure entertainment. Here are the stories of the legend himself, Clayton Mack.

Bella Coola Man: More Stories of Clayton Mack is a collection of Clayton Mack's stories about NW Indians, their beliefs and their culture. It is not a spunky, outdoorsy, adventurous collection of hunting stories like Grizzilies and White Guys. If you have read Grizzilies and White Guys and liked it, so then you want to read more Clayton Mack outdoors adventure stories this book may not be for you. The pace is very slow until the last few chapters, and to be honest, it is more of a cultural anthology. I think this book would be of great interest to someone writing a cultural anthropology paper about the Bella Coola indians of the Pacific Northwest but not to someone looking for an equally adventurour and fresh follow up to Grizzilies and White Guys. .
