Book summary: What do bears really do in the woods? Find out in this charming full-color book by world-renowned wildlife photographers Erwin and Peggy Bauer, winners of the North American Photography Association's 2000 Lifetime Achievement Award. The Bauers -- who have been spying on wildlife for decades -- are from the old school of wildlife photography, spending hundreds of hours in the field and never using photo manipulation. The bears we meet in this intimate keepsake book are playful, handsome, ferocious, curious, hungry, protective -- and always intensely wild. From the remote beauty of a polar bear crossing the ice to the comical antics of a grizzly trying to satisfy an itch, bears capture our imagination like no other animal. This stunning portfolio of work has 75 full color photographs and covers such magnificent country as Katami National Park, Denali, and Kodiak Island. Included is information on bear-viewing safety and a basic natural history of each species.
