This book is beautifully illustrated and written. It talks of an endangered species of bear and their threatened conservation area. Would be great to have in a classroom library for students to check out on individual time, or even for a classroom discussion on conservation. ( )

Checked out for Sept. 2015 discussion in the Children's Books group on GR.  I found it too long, not engaging, and couldn't bring myself to sit down and read it all.  Pictures were too fuzzy/ Impressionistic for my older eyes.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0618212590, Hardcover)

Far to the north along the Pacific coast of Canada lies an area where abundant rainfall nourishes everything from bright green grasses and colorful wildflowers to ancient, towering cedar, spruce, and sitka trees. This rainforest is the perfect habitat for salmon and a wide variety of birds, insects, and animals, most notably a unique type of black bear called the spirit bear, which is sometimes clothed in creamy white fur and has become legendary among the First Nation people who live in the region.
Noted naturalist Dorothy Hinshaw Patent describes the elusive spirit bear and its home, which is in danger of being destroyed by loggers and settlers as they clear-cut the ancient forests for lumber. Every part of the delicate ecosystem is threatened. But steps are now being taken to set aside a protected spirit bear sanctuary—a living museum where people could come and see the spirit bear’s realm. The beautiful, detailed watercolors by Deborah Milton will transport readers to this magnificent yet vanishing region.
