This is a Junior Library Guild Selection especially appropriate for middle and high schoolers. It is part of a “Scientists in the Field” series emphasizing “where science meets adventure.” It follows scientists in Asheville, North Carolina, who capture urban bears there. "Another inviting example of scientific field work in a consistently appealing series."--Kirkus, starred review. "The book capably combines the you-are-there immediacy of charting bear behaviors with surprising facts about bears (NC bears don’t do full hibernation; bear pregnancy involves “delayed implantation,” which means months between the conception and the implantation of the embryo) and illuminating information about how humans can best coexist with bears."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books.​ The author is a bookstore worker in Asheville.
