Craighead grew up with bears, as his father and uncle founded the first long-term study of grizzly bears in Yellowstone National Park. It is therefore not surprising that grizzlies receive more than their share of this survey of the world's bear species (though in fairness it must be pointed out that grizzlies have the widest range and have been the most extensively studied of the bears). Overview chapters look at the bears of the world in general, covering evolution, behavior, and conservation. The eight species of bear are each given a chapter, with the longest covering the three best-known (grizzly, polar, and American black) bears. Good basic information is given on general biology, behavior, reproduction, and diet for each species, along with their relationships with humans. Clearly delineated range maps and capsule facts complete this nicely illustrated introduction to the world's bears, which would be a good choice for any library's young adult collection.
