Black Bears: A Natural History

"If you have an interest in bears then Dave Taylor's sixteen years of research and photographs will keep your interest for hours with his new book."
-- Scope Camping News Magazine

Dave Taylor has spent his life photographing and writing about North American wildlife. In this full color book with more than 100 photographs, maps and charts, Black Bears introduces the reader to this shy, reclusive and largely misunderstood animal with an encyclopedic examination of the black bear's world by state, province and territory.

Of the three species (grizzly/brown, polar and black bear), Taylor examines and portrays his devotion and passion specifically to the black bear, the most populous of the species. A specific section touches upon the bear and people, offering valuable advice when camping in their environment and what to do if one encounters a bear in the wilderness.


Dave Taylor is the author/photographer of more than 50 books on wildlife and natural history. He is a retired teacher who has had a passion for black bears since the 1960s.
