David E. Brown teaches in the Department of Zoology at Arizona State University. Was a great book on the recent history of the grizzly in the American Southwest. I bet most Americans have no idea how distributed these animals were over the American continent.

Like all brown bears, Mexican grizzlies were omnivores. Their diet mainly consisted of plants, fruits and insects, and it is reported that it was very fond of ants, like most brown bears. Occasionally it fed also on small mammals and carrion. Females produced one to three cubs every three years or s. . University of Oklahoma Press. ISBN 978-0-8061-2880-1.

In this lively, historically accurate account, David E. Brown chronicles the demise of the grizzly bear in the Southwest. He presents the personal narratives of those who knew grizzlies, accounts of hunters and administrators in wildlife management agencies, and the popular legends and lore of the grizzly that one would hear around the campfire. Scientists, Southwest historians, and those interested in America’s wildlife will appreciate this readable study of the bear’s life history and of the unique spirit of adventure associated with the grizzly bear-a spirit that passed from southwest game ranges with the expirpation of the species in the first half of this century. This edition includes a new foreword by Charles Jonkel and a new preface, in which the author discusses the latest developments in the debate over the grizzly’s place in the Southwest.

 


Reviews about The Grizzly in the Southwest: Documentary of an Extinction (7):
Tegore
I illustrated this book and wanted extra copies for my family. This is the story of the methodical eradication of a species in the southwest. It is part of the history of this part of the United States and I recommend reading it for that reason.

The stories are amazing! There should be more books on wild flora a fauna just like this one! Everyone should read it!

Was a great book on the recent history of the grizzly in the American Southwest. I bet most Americans have no idea how distributed these animals were over the American continent. Was a great read!
Malann
As the owner of a huge bear book library, this is one of my favorites. It is wonderful to read accounts of the great bear roaming the Southwest, and sad to read about its demise. A must have for any lover of bears, wildlife or Southwestern U.S. history.
Wel
next to ghost grizzlies this is the best book on the subject. great history on attitudes on wildlife and how we still have not changed much since the last grizzly was killed. the ranching community still weilds to much power.
Wild Python
If you're looking for real information, don't waste your time on this book. Like 99 percent of this sort of stuff, this was written from the safety of an apartment complex or suburban lot. It's easy to worship large predators and encourage others to do so when you spend so little time off the pavement.
