Pub. Date:
Prowling the frozen reaches of the far northern corners of Russia, Canada, and Alaska, the Arctic polar bear is the world's largest land predator and one of the most difficult to track of all wild creatures. With spectacular photographs and an engaging, thoroughly researched text, Polar Bear follows its subject from rambunctious, protected cub to robust, formidable adult. Including close-ups of play and fighting rituals, swimming shots, luminous landscape images, and rarely seen photos of mothers at their dens, this elegant, informative book pays tribute to a fascinating and powerful survivor of one of the planet's harshest environments.
