Katmai — the smallest bear in a family of four cubs — is having a very big day!

Follow along with Katmai as she learns to fish for salmon with her brothers and sister. This charming book is a beautiful introduction to magnificent wild bears, and a wonderful story celebrating the bond between a parent and their children.

This remarkable close-up view into an inquisitive grizzly cub’s day is illustrated with rare, stunning photographs shot by renowned wildlife photographer Barrett Hedges.

A fascinating interview with the author and photographer goes behind the lens to find out how this once-in-a-lifetime photo shoot came together, thanks to Barrett’s keen eye, deep knowledge and respect for the wildlife he photographs.
