Bears are amazing animals. This book captures them through color photographs and intriguing information by Diane Swanson. Polar bears can ski -- scooting down slopes on all four feet, Grizzlies can run faster that cars are allowed to travel in towns, Lazy black bears sometimes fish lying down -- they dangle a paw in the water and when a fish swims by, they scoop it out.
