An amazing collection of data on the grizzly bear by a naturalist not a scientist. Therefore, it is not overly technical, yet factual both of the bear and human interaction with it.

An enduring homage to the grizzly bear
on 13 January 2004 - Published on Amazon.com
Originally published in 1955, The Beast That Walks Like Man: The Story Of The Grizzly Bear is an enduring homage to the grizzly bear, and ranges from their role in Native American myths; to their first scientific classification in 1815; to their near-extinction in the lower forty-eight states. Informatively written by skilled hunter and wildlife expert Harold McCracken, (who once brought down a grizzly bear himself yet came to respect and admire these animals, as well as mourn the modern day threat of habitat destruction that may yet cause their end), The Beast That Walks Like Man is a very highly addition to Wildlife Studies reference collections.
