Everyone likes to watch the bears perform at the zoo or circus. They look round and cuddly, playful and good-natured. But underneath that shaggy coat is one of the mightiest mammals on earth.

Robert McClung, former Curator of Mammals and Birds at the Bronx Zoo, introduces the reader to each member of this powerful family and tells how it lives.

Here are the North American bears—the black bear, grizzly, Alaskan brown bear, and polar bear. And here are bears from many other lands, including the bears' near-relative, the giant panda.
