    Can humans coexist with an apex predator? And in cases of conflict, who wins, the bear or the human? In a departure from many books on the recovery of the grizzly bear in the greater Yellowstone ecosystem, author Urbigkit (Brave and Loyal, 2017) writes from the perspectives of cattle ranchers and sheepherders who have had to adapt to the resurgence of grizzlies in places where they've been absent for more than 100 years. Urbigkit addresses the sometimes-conflicting results of sustained research on the expanding numbers of bears and the differing approaches state and federal agencies use when dealing with problem bears. She also quotes shepherds and ranchers who have had to change their grazing practices on land within the grizzly recovery zone; the bear trappers who deal with problem bears; and the policy statements from the National Park Service, the U.S. Forest Service, and Wyoming Game and Fish. As the author points out, the recovery of the grizzly would not have happened without the tolerance of the humans who share their range. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
