From the Back Cover:

Probably no extinct mammal can be studied in more detail, from a fuller fossil record, than the Cave Bear, Ursius Spelaeus. In his delightful, award-winning portrait, renowned finnish paleontologist Bjorn Kurten takes readers on a tour of cave bear life in the ice age. The Cave Bear story conveys the facts about these largest of bears, including the habits and society of Cave Bears, their ice age environment, biological variations, and extinction. Kurten also details the relationship between man and bear - namely, the theories surrounding bear-hunting and Cave Bear cults. Complete with brilliant illustrations by Margaret Lambert Newman that show restoration scenes of the ice age and its vanished animals, the Cave Bear story not only represents the authoritative work of an eminent paleontologist but remains accessible to any reader with an interest in the rich prehistory of our planet.
