The Lost Grizzlies: A Search for Survivors in the Wilderness of Colorado

The Lost Grizzlies: A Search for Survivors in the Wilderness of Colorado
de Rick Bass(Ed. Houghton Mifflin (Trade)) Isbn : 0395717590
21.80 €
YA?Grizzly bears had not been seen in the San Juan Mountains of southern Colorado for almost 15 years when a small group of men set out in 1990 to seek definitive evidence that the animals still existed there. They sought a tuft of fur, footprints, or, best of all, photographs to convince wildlife officials that these mountains still provided a habitat for grizzlies, a habitat that should be preserved. Over the next two years, two more expeditions were made until, finally, a confrontation... "I look for a tree to climb, my heart in my throat. That glimpse of the rolling humped back and the wild, wild eyes is all I get before the bear's flight takes it down to a wooded ravine and away..." Bass eloquently describes the pristine mountain meadows, the icy streams, the old-growth forests and th...

Astronomers' Stars

Astronomers' Stars
de Patrick Moore(Ed. W W Norton Co Inc) Isbn : 0393026639
15.00 €
YA-- Moore has taken 16 stellar objects and has explained what is unique about each one. He creates an overview of astronomy by discussing each type of star--from a varible star, to an exploding star, to a binary star--and presents a wealth of information as it pertains to each of these individual stellar objects. The entertaining writing style will appeal to laypeople, as many astronomical details are revealed in this short work. An index and bibliography will help readers to explore many other facets of modern astromony. --Karl Penny, formerly at Houston Public LibraryCopyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Hawks and Roses

Hawks and Roses
de Jim Ure(Ed. Gibbs Smith) Isbn : 0879053739
18.96 €
YA-- Equipped with little more than a commitment to help endangered birds of prey, the Ure family became totally involved in the rehabilitation of birds of all types. This timely and accurate book records their experiences. Readers learn, as the family did, that rehabilitation of this nature has not been done on any large scale. Ure's approach to reporting is not scientific but rather humanistic, making the point that humans and birds must live and let live if the latter are to survive. Many humorous and sad anecdotes make this a very readable narrative. Some booktalking may be necessary to move this title, but, in the right hands, it will be a sure hit. --Carolyn Koehler, Richard Byrd Library, Fairfax County, VACopyright 1991 Reed Business Information, Inc.
