Secrets of a Winter Swamp is a captivating story about a female black bears remarkable determination to not only survive for nearly six months within the frozen seclusion of a northern wooded swamp, without food or water, but to bring four tiny new lives into such a harsh environment in the dead of winter, and care for them. This compelling and intimate true-life tale, for all-ages, ventures into the secrecy of a black bear ground nest. A ground nest can resemble a black bears day bed, but sometimes it can actually look like a large bird nest. Theres not much room here, but with good reason: a tighter living space stays warmer. Although it may appear cramped to us, the bear family does not see it that way. This is their home for nearly half the year so it better be comfortable and even downright cozy. Secrets of a Winter Swamp is narrated in both English and Spanish. It contains seven selectable chapters and fits nicely into a classroom discussion or lectures on black bear hibernation or winter adaptations, and also describes the activities of other animals coping with winter in and around the swamp. So sit back and relax as one of natures most irresistible families comes into your home.
