About this book

A very personal tale from an acclaimed Russian researcher detailing his four years spent living among these great white bears. Ovsyanikov's book is a landmark study that reveals new facts about polar bear behaviour. For example, the long-established theory that polar bears are solitary animals is debunked. The author also illustrates that polar bears are not as dangerous to humans as they are so often made out to be, describing some of his more than 500 face-to-face encounters.
