Author Biography:

Keith Scott was born in New Brunswick, Canada, April 17, 1936. While attending vocational high school he played basketball and ended his graduating year winning the league's scoring title and was named player of the year. Keith went on to play professional basketball for the House of David and then the Harlem Aces for two and a half seasons. He was the only Caucasian on the team at the time. He had the privilege of playing with and against many great basketball players such as Bob Cousy of the Boston Celtics and Wilt Chamberlain of the Harlem Globetrotters. A non-drinker, Keith was often the designated driver on road trips between games. He would take side roads to the next game to enjoy seeing wildlife and a more natural landscape. Exploring nature eventually turned from a hobby into a lifetime vocation. Keith spends every summer in Alaska and the Canadian north hiking and looking for bears. He gives public lectures and slide shows on the subject of bears and bear safety. He is known as The Bear Man because of his expertise in bear behavior and his many safe encounters with black bears, polar bears - and even grizzly bears.
