“Life is served raw in wild country.” That’s what botanist turned smoke jumper Jesse Turnbull has to say to her new friend Sara — or is she an enemy? — when a backcountry hike that begins innocently enough turns flaky. And out in the brush, just out of sight — most of the time — is Number Seven, aka The Hungry Now. He’s a bear, a grizzly bear, and if bears could remember things as two-leggers do, he would remember why the Smell-among-smells troubles him so. It might be best for everyone that he can’t.
