Bears: A Year in the Life

Front Cover
A & C Black, 2008 - Bears - 176 pages
Bears have fascinated us for millennia and are still an object of both affection and fear. This book is organised by month, starting in February, when new life is born. Throughout the seasons we observe the mating game, the fight for survival, scenes of playtime, and, as the autumn turns to winter, another long sleep.
