Lavishly illustrated throughout with more than 100 full-colour photographs, maps and charts, Black Bears introduces the reader to this shy, reclusive and largely misunderstood animal with an encyclopedic examination of the black bear's world by state, province and territory. The diet, dens, mating habits, habitat, and hibernation are examined in Taylor's lively text, as is the bear's adaptation to the encroachment of civilization into its territory. A special section of Black Bears dealing with bears and people, offers valuable advice on camping in bear country, and what to do when encountering bears in the wilderness.
Dave Taylor is the author/photographer of more than 50 books on wildlife and natural history. He is a retired teacher who has had a passion for black bears since the 1960s.
