"Among the Bears provides the first in-depth discussion of what it is like to be a bear. It is a passionate account told by Ken Kilham, a naturalist who has dedicated a lifetime to understanding what makes bears tick. After reading this book, you will never again think of bears in the same way. Yes, they are greedy and cute, but they are so much, much more."-Marc Hauser, Author of Wild Minds
