Like no other book before, Bear: A Celebration of Power and Beauty blends natural history, legend, and folklore to explore the longstanding human fascination with one of Earth's most remarkable creatures. From shape-shifting shamans who drew their power from the bear, to the Great Bear that prowls the night skies, Bear explores the many ways that early peoples expressed their fear, respect, and reverence for these spiritually powerful animals. The more than 70 magnificent photographs by Daniel J. Cox breathe life into the legends, giving us the privilege of seeing the power and beauty of bears today.
