The Blue Bear tells the story of the author's friendship with the Japanese wildlife photographer Michio Hoshino who was killed by a grizzly in the Kurilskoya brown bear refuge on the Kamchatka peninsula on August 8, 1996.
In 2010, he published a memoir Walking Home: A Traveler in the Alaskan Wilderness, a Journey into the Human Heart. It is the story of his trek, which began by boat across the Gulf of Alaska, then became a hike across some of North America's wildest coastline. Along the way he shares fascinating tales of Alaska's history, with stories of adventurers and the Tlingit Indians who have been there before. In August 2010, the memoir was broadcast as Book of the Week on BBC Radio 4. The programme was produced by Rosalynd Ward and the book was read by Colin Stinton.
