Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0981381308, Perfect Paperback)

Whistler is a ski town, a mountain biking mecca, an Olympic destination and a world-renowned mountain playground. It s also home to some of the most awe-inspiring animals on earth: black bears. In A Whistler Bear Story, you ll meet the real black bears of Whistler -- Jeanie, Katie, Marissa, Fitz and Slip among others. They den near our favourite ski runs, graze in open meadows under chair lifts, munch on grass on local golf course fairways and devour berries alongside mountain bike trails. And sometimes, to their misfortune, they come into town, raid garbage bins, eat berries in people s yards, and even break into homes and restaurants looking for food. Find out what it s like to live in a town where the animal who inspired constellations, cartoon characters and stuffed toys roams the forests nearby, and learn what the town is doing to minimize human-bear conflict and preserve our fragile coexistence. A Whistler Bear Story features 78 stunning photographs taken by Sylvia Dolson, executive director of Get Bear Smart Society and leader in mitigating human-bear conflicts. Dolson, along with award-winning writer Katherine Fawcett, presents a fascinating historical overview of the human-bear relationship in Whistler and around the world. It s an intriguing story for locals, visitors, and bear-lovers everywhere. Proceeds from the sale of A Whistler Bear Story go toward the Get Bear Smart Society s educational programs.
