Editorial Reviews

Anchorage Daily News
...Tom Walker and Larry Aumiller do a wonderful job of capturing its essence in both words and pictures. . . .These are some of the best bear pictures you'll see anywhere...many up-close and personal. Complementing the bear pictures are photos of the McNeil habitat and surrounding landscape. Equally appealing is Walker's text. . . .
Backpacker Magazine
To get the chance to go to McNeil River yourself, you have to be lucky. But to enjoy the beauty and importance of this special place, all you have to do is read this book.
International Bear
. . . contains many superb color photographs . . . and details of behavioral interactions between bears, and between bears and humans, that cannot be found elsewhere in the popular or professional literature.
Booknews
Formerly published in 1993 as River of Bears. Text and superb color photographs document the wildlife spectacle of the bears of the McNeil River sanctuary. They examine bear behavior, social structure, and basic biology; human-bear relationships; and the interactions among the bears themselves as they emerge from their winter dens to play their parts in the animal hierarchy. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

What People are saying about this

Lance Olsen
River of Bears is excellent. It takes us beneath the surface, into bears' lives, and into their worlds. Anyone interested in bears will come away from this book more richly aware of bears and of the important opportunities for saving the landscapes that have for centuries made it possible for the world's wild bears to save themselves. I recommend it highly.
