Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-A year in the life of Alaskan grizzly bears is presented through the eyes of a superb nature photographer. Readers see the challenges each season brings; behavior and habitat are presented in both the outstanding full-color photographs and in the narrative. Hoshino is clearly an advocate of nature in general and of these enormous animals in particular; he scorns modern trophy hunters and takes some time out for philosophizing. His viewpoint borders on anthropomorphism at times as he watches the bears ``...enjoy life to its fullest'' and describes the ``...love and tenderness the mother bear shows her cubs.'' The pictures, however, do back up these musings, which are not out of place in this personal essay. For history, science, and all of the facts, refer to Lynn M. Stone's Grizzlies (Carolrhoda, 1993). For gorgeous photography and a good story, supplement that title with this one.-Susan Oliver, Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library System
