Info



Tess Tessier tours the country in a 1973 GMC fuchsia, purple and turquoise motor home bedecked with the slogan “Every Day Above the Ground is a Wonderful Day!” Better known as Grandma or Nana Tess, the colourful Tessier has been a guest in schools for the past twenty-five years. Her latest project, White Spirit Bear (Hancock $19.95) documents Kermode bears, the rare white black bears which, legend proclaims, were promised a life of peace in the ancient northwest rainforest. Good luck. 0-88839-475-6
