Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Scientists studying the blood, skull shapes and skeletons of what they'd thought were many species of brown bear, now identify all as a single species -the notable size differences due mostly to diet. Bears that fed on salmon over the centuries have grown larger than those that did not. Lynn M. Stone focuses on two subspecies: Kodiak (Island) browns, which may weigh more than 1,500 pounds, and the rest of North America's browns, the Grizzlies. Mr. Stone's and other top nature-photographers' photos illustrate his description of bear habitats, diet, life cycle and interaction with people.
