As noted in Temple Grandin's foreword to this wonderful book, Ben Kilham's unique way of studying the natural world, and specifically, black bears, stems from his dyslexia, which had hitherto barred him from entering the traditional academic world of science. But he persisted, and his insights into the world of bears has opened doors to broader understanding, in the way Jane Goodall's insights into chimpanzee behavior did many years ago. This is truly a brilliant book, and also "...a page-turner and must read" (Elizabeth Marshall Thomas).
"Like Jane Goodall's studies of chimps, Ben Kilham's work with black bears is more than just revealing; it's revolutionary."—Sy Montgomery
