Beyond the Bear
How I Learned to Live and Love Again After Being Blinded by A BearBook - 2013
One beautiful July day, Dan Bigley set out for a day of salmon fishing on Alaska's famed Russian River. A man with an insatiable need to venture where roads are rare, Dan couldn't have been happier as he started his day: He had a great job and a million-dollar view from his cabin, where his girlfriend, Amber, still slept. But that pristine snapshot in time was shattered when a grizzly bear snuck up and attacked, leaving him disfigured and blind. After Dan was found nearly dead, Amber's love was not lost. Extensive readjustment to an altered life and many surgeries later, the couple's unforgettable story is one of courage and the power of love to lead the way out of darkness.
