The world of the polar bear
A powerful predator, revealed here by an acclaimed nature photographer.
The polar bear is the largest terrestrial carnivore, uniquely adapted to thrive in the harsh environment of the Far North. In The World of the Polar Bear , renowned nature photographer Norbert Rosing follows the polar bear through each season.
With its thorough and engaging text and spectacular photography, the book provides:A season-by-season account of the life of the polar bear, including feeding, mating, rearing of cubs and journeying from the ice An intimate look at the animals that share the polar bear's environment, including seals, arctic foxes, walruses and muskoxen A section on such northern sky phenomena as sun dogs and the northern lights Many anecdotes and insights about the polar bear -- at once a loving parent, a fierce predator and a natural jester.
In addition to the 175 truly remarkable color photographs, there are four spectacular gatefolds. The World of the Polar Bear will appeal to any reader interested in natural history, animals, and the Arctic.
Polar bears are seriously threatened by global warming, and this book will attract considerable press attention.
