Grizzly Bears and Razor Clams tells the story of Chris Townsend's walk along the 1200 mile Pacific Northwest Trail, which runs for 1200 miles from the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Ocean through the states of Montana, Idaho and Wyoming. This is a wilderness route which much challenging terrain and remote country inhabited by bears and wolves. Most nights were spent camped alone in the forests and mountains and the author often met no other hikers for many days at a time. With three national parks - Glacier, North Cascades and Olympic - along the way plus many designated wilderness areas the trail passes through some of the most magnificent landscapes in the USA, many of which are pictured in the book in the author's photographs, all taken during the walk.
