No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Considered wise and powerful by the Inuit and other Native cultures, and celebrated in legend and literature, polar bears have become a charismatic symbol of animals threatened by climate change in the Arctic ecosystem. Yet for centuries, polar bears were demonized and slaughtered by adventurers who sailed the icy seas seeking wealth and glory. These fascinating stories from northern lands, including Canada, Alaska, Greenland and the Norwegian islands of Spitsbergen, draw from the annals of Arctic exploration and more recent polar bear research to capture the ingenuity, power and majesty of the world's largest land carnivore.
