The momma grizzly bear's nose wrinkled in anger as she smelled her hated enemies: man and dog. Instinctively she moved between the perceived threat and her twin cubs then charged, knocking Montana down before she was able to lift her gun from its holster. Roaring and snapping its huge jaws, the grizzly ripped at Montana's shirt and tore into her chest. The hounds fought desperately, knowing that if they didn't do something fast, Montana was as good as dead.
Montana had been given everything: intelligence, beauty, breeding, wealth, and opportunity.
She walked away from it all - and into the legend of the Mountain Girl.
