About this book

Today, we are familiar with the behaviour and lifestyle of the Pyrenean brown bears which are at the heart of a violent controversy. On the other hand, no one has yet traced the history of its human inhabitants that have lived alongside these plantigrades since the dawn of time.

After a long forced cohabitation, marked by the cult of this mythical animal, a real war against the bear began. Colorful portraits, the stories of the last hunters from both sides of the mountain chain, the trafficking in bear skins and fat, the analysis of the reasons for its disappearance and the chronicle of its reintroduction: this History of the bear of the Pyrenees is a reference work that was lacking until now.

Summary in French:
On connaît assez bien aujourd’hui les moeurs et le mode de vie des ours bruns des Pyrénées, vedettes de violentes polémiques. En revanche, personne n’avait encore retracé l’histoire passionnée que les Pyrénéens ont vécue aux côtés des plantigrades depuis la nuit des temps.

Après une longue cohabitation forcée, marquée par le culte de cet animal mythique, a commencé une véritable guerre contre l’ours. Des portraits hauts en couleurs, les récits des derniers chasseurs des deux versants de la chaîne, le trafic de peaux et de graisse du plantigrade, l’analyse des raisons de sa disparition et la chronique de sa réintroduction : cette Histoire de l’ours des Pyrénées constitue l’ouvrage de référence qui manquait jusqu’à présent.
