Bear in Mind: The California Grizzly Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the archives of the Bancroft Library. Bear in Mind is the story of the California grizzly bear. Once arguably the most powerful and terrifying animal in the California landscape, he now lives in the imagination, a disembodied symbol of the romantic West. Bear in Mind is also a portal to one of California's great resources, the Bancroft Library of the University of California, Berkeley. More than 150 images from the library's archives and collections--newspaper illustrations from the gold rush, paintings from early scientific expeditions, photo albums, sheet music, settlers' diaries, fruit-crate labels, and more--accompany the bear stories of Indians, explorers, vaqueros, forty-niners, and naturalists, among others. The result is a uniquely compelling natural history, a grand book worthy of its subject.

Synopsis:

"Unless otherwise noted, all material is from the collection of The Bancroft Library, University of California, Berkeley"--T.p. verso.

Synopsis:

A uniquely compelling natural history of the extinct California Grizzly bear with 150 color and b&w images from the Bancroft Library of the University of California, Berkeley.
