Among the Bears: Raising. A licensed wildlife rehabilitator, Kilham wanted to raise the cubs to live successfully in the wild, but had to rely largely on his own common sense to achieve this goal. So he let the cubs teach him, by closely observing and noting their behavior as they rambled together in New Hampshire's northern woods.

In the spring of 1993, Ben Kilham, a naturalist who lives in the woodlands of New Hampshire, began raising a pair of orphaned wild black bears. The experience changed his life. While spending thousands of hours with the cubs, Kilham discovered unknown facets of bear behavior that have radically revised our understanding of animal behavior.

Benjamin Kilham and Ed Gray Among the Bears: Raising Orphan Cubs . As in the bestselling books by Jane Goodall and Dian Fossey, Among the Bears explores the breaking down of mutual suspicion.

Benjamin Kilham and Ed Gray Among the Bears: Raising Orphan Cubs in the Wild. With growing black bear populations and an ever-increasing sprawl of human development, conflicts are inevitable and increasing. In the spring of 1993, Ben Kilham, a naturalist who lives in the woodlands of New Hampshire, began raising a pair of orphaned wild black bears.

His previous book is Among the Bears, Raising Orphan Cubs in the Wild Kilham and his work with black bears . For decades, Kilham has studied wild black bears in a vast tract of Northern New Hampshire woodlands.

They paint a vivid picture of ursine social life and intelligence.

Ben Kilham, a wildlife biologist, takes in orphaned bear cubs until they are old enough . In addition he observes adult bears in the wild, including Squirty, who is now 22 years old and has had 11 litters.

Other bear orphans perch in the trees when Ben Kilham ventures into their enclosure. Meet the American bear whisperer, who lives in the woods of New Hampshire and whose life work is understanding black bears, winning him not just international stature but greater insight into humankind.

In the spring of 1993, Benjamin Kilham, a naturalist who lives in the woodlands of New Hampshire, began raising a pair of orphaned wild black bears. The experience changed his life. While spending thousands of hours with the cubs, Kilham discovered unknown facets of bear behavior that have radically revised our understanding of animal behavior. Now widely recognized for his contributions to wildlife science, Kilham reveals that bears are altruistic and cooperate with unrelated, even unknown individuals, while our closer relatives, the supposedly more highly evolved chimps, cooperate only within troops of recognizable members. Beyond the natural history, he introduces individual bears who become enthralling and memorable characters.

This is an extremely valuable account of raising orphaned bear cubs and bear behavior in general. Ben Kilham is a biologist of amazing insight and considering the thousands of hours spent walking with his bears and mediating community problems with bears I can't say enough about how important it is to understand these amazing beings and how they have suffered the intolerance of humans moving into their ancestral territories. If people knew more about bears I think there would be less fear and fewer killings of these awesome creatures. My many encounters in the forests of New Mexico have proven to me that bear encounters are something to covet, each and every sighting a monument to the miracle of our, still surviving, wildlife.

and killing such gentle creatures. Ben Kilham understands them well and has a wealth of knowledge to share in this book! My own experiences with bears in our SW New Mexico echo

An incredible book on an incredibly interesting topic. Makes you think very seriously about the plight of the black bear and the effects from human intrusion into their habitat.

Most of us will never get to have bears in the basement, or to walk in the woods with bear cubs, or to stick our heads into a bear's den to see how things are going. So if our only bear contact has been through TV, this book will be valuable.

Kilham writes well enough that he largely disappears from the story, and you can imagine doing what he is doing, learning what he is learning, walking in his shoes. And in so walking, we learn how little we previously knew about bears, become fascinated with their lives and society, and want to know more.

Much of the power of the book comes from stories. Stories of how a mother bear introduced her cubs to the author, of how she protected the author from a big male bear that saw him as a rival, of how bears form friendships and share food with their friends, how bear cubs love to play, how mother bears go about teaching the kids, how bears can love a man, and show that love.

As a story teller, Kilham is terrific. For spending every daylight hour outdoors in New England, summer and winter, he never seems to get hot or cold, never seems to get wet when it rains, never gets tired, never spots a black fly or mosquito.The story is not about him. It is about the bears. They couldn't have asked for a better translator or advocate.

I don't think this book delivers as much insight into ourselves as "Illumination in the Flatwoods: A Season with the Wild Turkey", which is slightly better written, but the two authors approached their subject matter in the same way, with similar results: they devoted all of their time to raising young wild animals and re-introducing them to the wild, and along the way were admitted to a secret society.

I bet you'll give it 5 stars too, and go on to buy his other book - "Out on a Limb: What Black Bears Have Taught Me about Intelligence and Intuition" - which should be read after this. And if you haven't read "Illuminaton in the Flatwoods", better hurry up and do that, too.

We lived along the Canadian border - very remote country - where there were more bears than people. This book is a down-to-earth, easy to read, approachable and informative narrative. Of course, I wish there were even more photos of the bears, especially the one shown in the National Geographic special of Kilham taking a nap on his couch with a small bear beside him - perfection! We also are dyslexic, and relate very much to his story. Sometimes, dyslexics see the world differently, in their own special, creative way. Good for Kilham! I'm sorry to see so much bear habitat encroached upon by housing developments - a sad situation for bears, one of our most precious and remarkable native Americans. I also suggest Kilham's newest book: Out on a Limb: What Black Bears Have Taught Me about Intelligence and Intuition.

Great insight and work done by Mr. Kilham.

Good reading.

Ben Kilham is a lay person that found himself raising orphan bears -- he speaks to you from his experience, not his PhD. This is the most enlightening and informative book on black bears that I've found. I have learned so much and have much more respect and am awe of this magnificent creature (and I hunt!). I don't think I ever thought bears were stupid (Yogi bear and Disney didn't help), but I never knew how incredibly intelligent they were (are).
I just finished reading Among the Bears and I think Benjamin did a great job at describing the bears body language, and his explenation of what their sounds and gestures meant are superb,,,I have seen a lot of bears in the last 40 years and have seen several of these gestures..This book starts out a little slow but soon picks up and then I could not stop reading, This book does tell it like it really is in the bears world good and bad
