Ice Bear: The Arctic World of Polar Bears is a stunning collection of photographs by acclaimed "polar bear photographer" Steven Kazlowski. Featuring mostly never-before-published images, this simple yet evocative book explores the polar bear's Arctic home and life cycle. Playful cubs, hungry boars, and intimidating sows -- Kazlowski's photographs capture this fascinating species in all its beautiful and fearsome glory. More than 100 full-color images reveal the polar bear's world, as well as the entire Arctic landscape: rugged ice floes, magical aurora borealis, walruses, seals, Arctic foxes and rabbits, beluga whales, and a variety of birds including the snowy owl. Kazlowski also captures the Inuit people and their culture in which the polar bear plays a significant part. The photographs are complemented by a short and informative essay by polar bear expert Ian Stirling that portrays the natural history of the polar bear -- its behavior, diet and prey, unique features, and habitat -- as well as its status as an endangered species.
