montana bear stories review Jun 27, 2007
Great book! Very interesting true life stories that pull you in and let you experience some of these exciting adventures. Once I started the book, I could not put it down. A must read!
A wonderful collection of bear stories... Jul 31, 2006
I read this book after reading "Great Wyoming Bear Stories" (which was actually written after this book, and is intended to be a companion piece) and really enjoyed the stories and writing that Ben Long employed in this collection. Many of the tales go back to the late 19th/early 20th century, and into the present. I wouldnt call it a definitive book on the behavior of bears (if you are looking for that information, read something written by Stephen Herrero). Nonetheless, this is absolutely a great collection of stories concerning both grizzlies and black bears. My only complaint is that it wasnt longer. Definitely worth reading.
A Montanan's review Aug 18, 2004
My mother loves bear stories and is constantly trying to get me to read them. She had just got Ben's book for her summer reading and I was lucky enough to spend most of my vacation with it. It is a great read and has provoked alot of discussion around the dinner table. Be sure to read Ben's book on Lewis and Clark, too.
