Book: Silvertip

Local Bozeman resident and author/illustrator Ted Rechlin gives Montana’s children of all ages a chance to find out what a year in the life of a Yellowstone grizzly is like in his new book Silvertip (Riverbend Publishing, $10). This beautifully illustrated picture book depicts a grizzly named Silvertip as he goes from winter slumber to winter slumber. Silvertip is full of adventure and even gives a glance into what a Yellowstone grizzly may think about his many admirers. Rechlin’s comic book-style block illustrations provide truthful depictions of a grizzly’s life, and Silvertip’s protection of his territory as well as finding his fellow grizzly bear lady friend prove amusing for children and adults alike.
