Yellowstone Bear Tales.

No public place is so closely identified with bears as Yellowstone is. Stories from America's first national park reveal how the public image of bears has changed from the wilderness horror to a big version of Teddy Ruxton, the cuddly bumbler. These stories begin with the park's first superintendent and end in 1950 with the park's chief naturalist. In between are very readable stories that reveal the natural history of bears and the changing attitudes of their human observers.

Paul Schullery, who works in Yellowstone's research division, intrudes on the stories only when necessary to warn the reader that certain information has been proven wrong, and his introductions are often as good as the stories themselves.
