  Monarch: the Big Bear of Tallac in the High Sierras of California and Nevada

back to California & Nevada page

by Ernest Thompson Seton.

This classic wildlife story was created just after 1900, when a few California grizzly bears, like Monarch, still did roam the Sierra; now they roam only on California's flag. It is a story of the sad life of one of the last wild grizzlies who lived near Tallac, the high mountain rising from Lake Tahoe's west shore, still wild country today, located in the Desolation Basin Wilderness Area. The book "Monarch" was written for children, but like all truly classic children's literature, is excellent reading for adults, too. Author Seton left many wildlife works for us, such as "Wild Animals I Have Known" and "The Biography of a Grizzly" and was also a practical leader, founding the Woodcraft League, forerunner of today's Boy Scouts. His museum is at the scouts' Philmont Ranch in New Mexico.

100 drawings from the original, by the author, are included. 168 pages. Covers scuffed. Limited supply.

ISBN-10: 0-89646-040-1. ISBN-13: 978-0-89646-040-9.  Order #: VIST0040 paper$12.95
