Editorial Reviews

Archives of Natural History - Juliet Clutton-Brock

"Fills a gap in concentrating on the history of cultural associations between the animals and humans. . . . It is indeed surprising, considering the wealth of legends and traditions to do with bears worldwide, how very few books have been written about them, but in Bear we are given a taste of what must surely be a huge and enthralling subject."
Times Literary Supplement - Tim Dee

"Rich and suggestive juxtapositions. . . . A good if prosaic introduction."
Sierra

"Richly detailed."
