    Benjamin's Books

    Out on a Limb

    What Black Bears Have Taught Me About Intelligence and Intuition

    Out on a Limb delivers Kilham's fascinating glimpse at the inner world of bears, and also makes a passionate case for science, and education in general, to open its doors to different ways of learning and researching— doors that could lead to far broader realms of discovery.
