Dr. Barrie Gilbert’s fascination with grizzly bears almost killed him—literally. A close encounter with a frightened bear during a research trip in Yellowstone National Park left him clinging to life. Not only did Gilbert recover, he returned to fieldwork, devoting the next several decades to understanding and protecting these often-maligned giants.
Drawn from his decades of experience, Gilbert’s book “One of Us: A Biologist’s Walk Among Bears” explodes myths that depict grizzlies as bloodthirsty beasts and reveals the intelligent, adaptable side of these astonishingly social animals.
