Abstract:

Mark of the Bear is a remarkable collection of ten original and previously published essays by leading American nature writers. Edited by Paul Schullery, it is a tribute to the spirit and romantic image of this American icon through stories of adventure and discovery. Filled with spectacular full-color photography by some of the nation's best nature and wildlife photographers, Mark of the Bear provides a unique personal encounter with these living legends. Ten naturalists describe their encounters with bears, with over half the book devoted to full-page, full-color photographs. The editor has gathered selections from writers and naturalists-among them, former US president Theodore Roosevelt, environmentalist Doug Peacock, and writer Barry Lopez-to accompany 85 color photos in this lovely tribute. Each of the species of bear found in North America-black bears, polar bears, brown bears, and grizzlies-is treated. No index or bibliography.
