Author Biography
Kilham, Benjamin (Author)

Benjamin Kilham is a woodsman and naturalist who over the past twenty-five years has discovered and then field-tested a new, exciting wildlife biology. Ben Kilham is New Hampshire's only licensed bear rehabilitator. He found himself spending the winter with 27 lively and orphaned cubs a huge jump from the three to five he typically sees. A bad year of feeding followed a good year of breeding. Kilham keeps the cubs in an 8-acre enclosed forest behind his house until spring, when he works with the state Fish and Game Department to release them in remote locations.

His titles include Out on a Limb: What Black Bears Have Taught Me About Intelligence and Intuition and Among the Bears: Raising Orphan Cubs in the Wild.
