"Bears" combines the work of some of North America's leading wildlife photographers with the writing of Daniel Wood, a leading nature writer. This celebration of the bears of North America covers black bears, brown bears, and polar bears.Through photographs, text, and extended captions, the earth's largest terrestrial carnivore is revealed in intimate detail. Wood explores social interaction, hunting and hibernation patterns, mothering behaviour, and the consequences of human contact with these magnificent creatures. He also follows a year in the life of a bear and, in the process, dispels many common myths about this misunderstood animal.Catch a glimpse of migrating polar bears hunting and frolicking in Churchill, Manitoba, as they wait for Hudson Bay to freeze. Follow the black bear as it scrounges for salmon, insects, berries, and garbage. Discover why the grizzly bear can strike terror in the hearts of hikers and campers. Bears enters the wild domain of this fascinating animal and presents an in-depth portrait of it at work, rest and play.
