Summary
"For almost 20 years, Norbert Rosing has travelled regularly to the west coast of Hudson Bay, and has captured this unique world and its inhabitants on film. In The World of the Polar Bear, he guides us on a visual journey of discovery following the life cycle of the polar bear - a cycle closely tied to the melting and freezing of the arctic ice." "Through this collection of photographs, we witness a mother bear and her cubs emerging from their winter den, a dramatic fight between two large male bears, playful arctic foxes, the migration of snow geese, seals, walruses and more. The changeable arctic landscape is also beautifully captured, from winter's windswept vistas and sculptural snowdrifts to summer's delicate wildflowers and waterfalls of melting ice. Images of vivid sunsets, sundogs and dancing northern lights complete the arctic experience." "Rosing's photographs are accompanied by his informative and lively text, filled with personal anecdotes from a man who has experienced the arctic up close."--BOOK JACKET
