About the Book

Bears: Tracks through Time is an eclectic look at our relationship with these beautiful and sometimes frightful creatures with which we co-exist in the Canadian Rockies. As a result of our close cohabitation with bears, the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies has accumulated a modest collection of art, artifacts and archival materials related to bears. This book features images and stories from the collection. The postcards sent to us from the past provide a compelling glimpse into our changing views of bears. This is neither an exhibition catalogue nor an exhaustive study of bears, but rather an assortment of bear tales and the people, images and artifacts related to those stories.
