In this inspiring and moving story, world-renowned zookeeper Else Poulsen describes how a female polar bear named Bärle was rescued from the filthy, inhumane conditions of a circus in the Caribbean and flown to the safety of the Detroit Zoo, where Poulsen helped her recover. As Poulsen documents, however, not all captive bears are so fortunate. Includes black-and-white photographs.
