From cave bears to dancing bears, totemic
bears to teddy bears, this elegant little book comes lavishly
illustrated with bear photos, drawings and paintings. Author Robert
E. Bieder tells the history of this fascinating animal through time
and across cultures; there’s a treat on every page. The book
is just one of a series on animals; seven have been published
(including Crow and Snake) and 17 are still to come.
