The psychology of the hunter was a complex matter. Although he wanted to kill the bear more than he wanted anything else in the world at that moment, he loved him, without ever having seen him, He loved him for what he was, and for what he made of the hunter who could take him, and for the life he lived and caused the hunter to live….In a way this coldly proficient man, this leader of other men, was like the bear. He was admirable in his stature, but dangerous to tamper with.” –Roger Caras, Monarch of Deadman Bay, 1969
