Mother's Day FeatureDo you get your mom the same thing every Mother’s Day? Maybe it’s time to break out of the bouquet-and-brunch mold with a lovely gift that will enrich her life and the lives of others around the world.

This year, give your loved one a UC Press membership and she will receive a range of benefits, including a copy of The Exultant Ark, a beautifully illustrated book with over one hundred thirty striking images that celebrate the full range of animal experience.

These photographs, windows onto the inner lives of pleasure seekers, show two polar bears engaged in a bout of wrestling, hoary marmots taking time for a friendly chase, Japanese macaques enjoying a soak in a hot spring, a young bull elk sticking out his tongue to catch snowflakes, and many other rewarding moments.

UC Press members play a critical role in providing the resources necessary to publish outstanding books, journals, and digital resources that set the standard for excellence in scholarship and craftsmanship, promote independent thinking and diverse voices, and preserve the artistic and intellectual achievements that define us as human.

Thank you for your support!
