New Book Delivers Much More Than the Bear Facts
Introducing BEAR-OLOGY: Fascinating Bear Facts, Tales & Trivia (March 2009)
Bears are everywhere. On the news and in the movies, in the great outdoors and in our neighborhoods. They've even become embedded in our culture, from advertising icons to everyday language. Some people fear bears; others love them. But just about everyone misunderstands bears.
BEAR-OLOGY, a new book by Sylvia Dolson, sets the record straight and reveals the fascinating and often unseen world of bears. In this light-hearted yet fact-filled treasure trove, readers will discover the history and nature of black bears, grizzlies, and polar bears. Along the way, they will meet some famous bears and be entertained by amazing trivia and intriguing lore.
BEAR-OLOGY is one of the best all-you-want-to-know-about-bears books ever written for both the curious and advanced reader,” says Wayne McCrory, a bear biologist from British Columbia, Canada. "Sylvia has done a remarkable job relaying, in simple language blended with wonderful photos and illustrations, the fascinating ecology, behavior, lore and history of bears that can only help us humans achieve a better coexistence with these wild and sentient beings that so symbolize the wilderness."
As executive director of the Get Bear Smart Society, Dolson's goal of improving human-bear relations takes a big step forward with the North American release of BEAR-OLOGY.
"It is for wild bears everywhere that I have compiled this book," says author Sylvia Dolson. "I want to promote a deeper understanding of these intelligent and vulnerable animals, one that transcends the unfounded fears based on years of misinformation, sensationalized media stories, and exaggerated campfire tales. And for those who have never had the opportunity to spend time in bear country, I hope they will be able to gain an appreciation of the true nature and essence of the bear--one of the most amazing animals on planet earth."
Written for all ages and filled with illustrations, cartoons and color photos, BEAR-OLOGY: Fascinating Bear Facts, Tales & Trivia by Sylvia Dolson is published by PixyJack Press(ISBN 978-0-9773724-5-4, 192 pages, $18.00). Visit www.PixyJackPress.com for additional details.
