About the Author

Bernd Brunner, a graduate of the Free University of Berlin and Berlin School of Economics, is an independent scholar, freelance writer, and editor of nonfiction books. He is the author of The Ocean at Home: An Illustrated History of the Aquarium. Lori Lantz received a Ph.D. in comparative literature from UCLA and attended the Free University of Berlin as a Fulbright Scholar.


Brunner's comprehensive book on the history of humans and their encounters with bears is one of the most complete that has been written. As with his The Ocean at Home: An Illustrated History of the Aquarium, Brunner describes in great detail the natural life of bears, their different breeds, and their interaction with humanity from prehistoric times until now. He also includes the folklore and stories surrounding these strong, intelligent animals. The readable text is accompanied by lively illustrations that include sketches, photographs, and wood carvings. Unfortunately, in some areas the captions of the illustrations are in German, but there are labels nearby describing the total group of illustrations to help out. Even though this book is understandable and quite informative, its scholarly, narrow focus recommends it only for academic and larger public libraries where the author's previous books circulate.-Joyce Tallman, Cuyahoga Cty. P.L., Cleveland Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

"Brunner''s book is full of information about the relationship between bears and humans, and is delightfully illustrated with period engravings."-New York Times Book Review (Paperback Row)
