The story unfolds in “the realm of bears” that is the heart of the Yushan National Park. It is a place brimming with wildlife ecosystems and aboriginal culture. Fascinated by the area, one female ecologist started her journey searching for bears in 1998 while subsequently developing a close companionship with a Bunun hunter in the midst of this wilderness. Together with copious research, the secret of the Taiwan Black Bear is thus revealed.
