Bear! Is a fascinating volume which will grip the interest and fire the imagination of both the seasoned outdoorsman and the one who must enjoy the thrills of big-game hunting from his arm-chair reading.
The true, breath-taking field encounters between man and bear, which liberally appear throughout the books’ pages, will capture and excite the reader, young or old. Certainly to the big-game hunter—whether he takes to the wooded hills after his black bear, to the remote crags and high basins after his grizzly, to the Coastal regions after his brown bear, or to the Eskimo-land after his great white polar bear—this volume with its wealth of how-to information will prove invaluable reading.
But beyond this, Bear! is a revealing story of North America’s Bears. It delves deeply into their habitat, their wondrous cycle of living, and their natural place in the scheme of wildlife. This book traces those basic behavior changes which have been forced upon our country’s great ursines through man’s westward movement, his contact with them, and his gradual driving of them to the last wilderness and sanctuaries for survival.
Lastly, Bear! is a documentary of a noble animal’s long struggle, in the minds and actions of men, to rise from the lowly status of a pest to that of a grand big-game animal.
Bear! by Clyde Ormond, the renowned outdoorsman, is the result of thirty years of observation, study, hunting, and evaluation of a priceless but little known species. It is “must” ready for any sportsman.
