Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “Alaska’s McNeil River State Game Sanctuary has world-wide appeal. Nowhere on earth do so many bears congregate in such large numbers. At the peak of the chum salmon run, perhaps 125 bears can be found within a one- to two-mile radius of McNeil Falls. Now River of Bears, the first book to fully document this remarkable gathering, examines the unique behaviour, social structure, basic biology, and extraordinary human-bear relationship that exists in this world-famous sanctuary. The book also delves into the natural history of the area prior to sanctuary status up to the present day — detailing the challenge that commercial development poses for the sanctuary’s future. “
