      this book is about the myths people have told about bears. while a lot of the things storl writes about are interesting, i would put a big old [citation needed] on anything from this book before i used it. (on some things i can tell his perspective is skewed: he talks up thor's connection to bears a lot, even though the only actual link he gives is thor being sometimes called "bjorn," or bear, as a nickname. i've done prior reading on norse mythology and that supposed connection felt off to me, [...]

      Thank you for the free book . I love winning!I've under the weather so review will have to wait. Just know I was enthralled. So much I didn't know about bears from rituals, bear plants ( think Bear Garlic) mythology, history, fairytalesWinnie the Pooh and Smokey the Bearoh my, and so much more. A plethora of bear related fact.I need to keep this copy for future reference. Mr. Storl has given us what would be for me a lifetime's work.I rounded down to 3.5 stars.
