The Missing Grizzly Cubs by Judy Young - ESSENTIAL

Young, Judy The Missing Grizzly Cubs (The Wild World of Buck Bray #1), 227 pages.  Sleeping Bear Press, 2016.  $10. Content: G (some danger).

Buck’s dad has made his living traveling the world and filming documentaries in exotic places.  Now the two are collaborating on a series starring Buck, focusing on America’s wild places and parks.  Their first effort will take place in Denali National Park in Alaska.  If the scenery and wildlife aren’t dangerous enough, two bear cubs have gone missing.  Buck and Toni, the cameraman’s daughter, may have all the clues needed to crack the case.

I will happily follow Buck and his crew all over the U.S. and enjoy this series.  I loved seeing the other side of the reality T.V. biz, as I am always curious about the life of a cameraperson on shows like Survivor and the Amazing Race.  Reminiscent of  Skurzynzki’s Mysteries in Our National Parks series, but for a younger audience.
