Seven books you will not believe are nonfiction

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Scott Greenstone tagged seven books you won’t believe are nonfiction, including:
The Legend of Grizzly Adams: California’s Greatest Mountain Man, by Richard Dillon.

If you think Davey Crockett was tough just because Disney made movies about him, check out John Adams, known as Grizzly because…well, he was a BAMF. After deciding that mining gold was too mainstream, he caught a bear and tamed her, teaching her to follow him, carry his things, and even carry him. That’s right, he rode bears for fun. And after taming more bears, he took his show on the road and wrestled bears. The only thing more awesome than that is Tron Paul Revere.
