A color photograph of a lunging brown bear, its huge, gaping mouth poised to bite, is the heart-pounding start to this entry in the new Face to Face with Animals series. In accessible, exciting language, Sartore, a National Geographic photographer, describes his close encounters with bears while on assignment. In later chapters, he matches stunning photographs of bears playing, fighting, eating, and chasing prey (all show beautifully on the book's thick, glossy paper) with basic information about bears' bodies, habitats, and behavior. A final chapter looks at environmental and human factors that endanger bears, and an appended section introduces animal conservation ideas. An extensive facts-at-a-glance spread, well-rounded resource lists, and tips for aspiring wildlife photographers complete this handsome, oversize volume, which will draw young researchers and browsers alike.
