"What our sister says is true. In some places the river has dried up, while in others they burst their banks and drown the land around for many bearlengths. There are fewer fish to eat, fewer roots and berries to be found."
— Oogrook about food shortage in Great Bear Lake, page 217
Oogrook (oo-grook) is an old[1] male[1] grizzly bear.[2]
