The waterfalls in this cam create a temporary barrier for salmon as they swim, making it an ideal fishing spot for hungry brown bears. Are brown bears and grizzly bears the same species? Technically, yes.

Bears have fascinated us for millennia and are still an object of both affection and fear. This book is organised by month, starting in February, when new life is born. Throughout the seasons we observe the mating game, the fight for survival, scenes of playtime, and, as the autumn turns to winter, another long sleep. Matthias Breiter's award-winning nature photographs have appeared in National Geographic, GEO and numerous magazines. He holds an advanced degree in biology and is completing his doctorate on bears.

The book focuses on an entire year in the lives of the three bear species found in North America - the brown bear, the black bear and the polar bear. Matthias Breiter shows how these widely feared but rarely encountered animals hunt, feed, play, mate and breed.

In this book Matthias Breiter takes us on a fascinating journey through an entire year in the life of North America's great bears - the black bear, the brown bear and the polar bear. Beginning in February when the bears first wake from hibernation and give birth, we watch these magnificent animals hunt, feed, play, mate and breed until the return of winter, when the need to hibernate begins the cycle again. Bears are, by nature, solitary creatures and prone to fight only if threatened. They have no significant natural enemies

Matthias Breiter has written and photographed an absolutely beautiful book about the bears of Katmai National Park in Alaska. Home to Brooks River and Falls, this land is one of the most magical and magnificant places on earth and my favorite place in all the world other than my own home. This place is also home to a large population of brown bears who in the summer allow humans to visit and watch them fish for salmon at the falls. There are bears all around but during my visits I never felt threatened, even when I nearly stepped on one sleeping right next to my cabin. Mr. Breiter does a fabulous job of showing bears in their own natural space just doing what bears do. He also has written wonderful text about this place and the bears' lives within it. The last part of the book has more facts and statistics that give one an idea of the size and population of bears. All in all this is a beautiful book about a beautiful land with beautiful bears. This will be a treasured addition to my library.

Extremely enjoyable and informative.

This is a wonderful book for anyone who loves animals. I read it right after spending time at Brooks Lodge in the Katmai National Park. The photographs are gorgeous and took me right back there, but the fact that the author is a biologist who knows and loves bears made the writing just as evocative of the place. Whether or not you are ever lucky enough to spend time with the bears of Katmai you will enjoy this book.

I have been watching the live bear cams from Katmai all summer (on explore.org). Hard to stay away from the computer monitor! I decided to learn more about the brown bears of Katmai and, amazingly, this seems to be the only book out there. Good purchase. The photos are stupendous and the text is interesting. Highly recommended reading for those interested in brown bears.

This book is beautiful; a work of art. Matthias Breiter may very well be the most knowledgeable naturalist on earth when it come to brown bears.
Unfortunately, the author's hubris seeps through the photos and text, and that type of arrogance is a real disappointment in someone whose work could be such a force for good for these creatures with which we share our habitat. His immodest touting of his abilities influences one's opinion of his body of work in a negative way and his name-dropping is an apparent manifestation of deep-seated insecurity. While I'm no photographer, I have spent a fair amount of time in the wild and among bears, and it's hard to see how these images haven't been tinkered with through the dark room equivalent of slick photo-shopping. What truly galls is that he really doesn't appear to have any conservation values in his bones; bears, instead, are a means to make money, heighten his reputation, make more money.
