Bears of Katmai

This book portrays brown bears as what they are: highly adaptable animals that defy generalization. Matthias Breiter draws on his vast experience among the Bears of Katmai to offer a different perspective on these animals. He shares his unique insights into the daily lives of the bears throughout the seasons. Each chapter describes a different bear at a specific stage in its life: cubs exploring their environment in their first spring; large males fighting for supremacy over fishing sites in the summer; and 'Diver', the calm Methuselah of the bears of the Brooks River, catching salmon as the snow flies in the late fall.
