Polar Bears: The Arctic's Fearless Great Wanderers

( 2 )

Overview

Around the Arctic Circle and for some distance on either side of it, polar bears are at the top of the food chain. They have no natural enemies and are fearless. Wherever the North has icy seas, there are polar bears, living on the ice and hunting seals-their favorite food-with matchless cunning and ability. They roam far and wide, often being found far south of their Arctic habitat: they are seen regularly in Churchill, Manitoba, on the western shores of Hudson Bay, and have been spotted to the south and east in...

Overview

Around the Arctic Circle and for some distance on either side of it, polar bears are at the top of the food chain. They have no natural enemies and are fearless. Wherever the North has icy seas, there are polar bears, living on the ice and hunting seals-their favorite food-with matchless cunning and ability. They roam far and wide, often being found far south of their Arctic habitat: they are seen regularly in Churchill, Manitoba, on the western shores of Hudson Bay, and have been spotted to the south and east in James Bay. They rarely attack humans, but when they do, they win. Considered wise and powerful by Native cultures, they have become a charismatic symbol of animals threatened by climate change in the Arctic ecosystem. Anthony Dalton has gathered stories of Ursus maritimus from most of the lands that touch upon the Arctic Circle: Canada, Greenland, Norway, Siberia and Alaska. These fascinating tales depict the bears' single-minded approach to life and acquiring food, tell of interactions between polar bears and humans, and capture the majesty of this mighty bear.

    Incorrect

    I all ready noticed an incorrect fact about polar bears, that they rarely attack humans, well it happens often enough in the arctic that people are terrified of them! I would also guess that they will say that polar bears are endangered, which they are not!! More polar bear hunting tags were sold last year than ever before! If these are the only incorrect things about this book than it should be a good read, if not then well it will suck!
