About this book

It is possible that Bear Island was first discovered by Vikings, but the first documented observations were written by the Dutchman Willem Barents in 1596. Although many naturalists, explorers, fortune hunters, seamen, whalers and soldiers have since added to the island's dramatic history, Bear Island is still one of the least visited islands in the northern hemisphere - a place where the forces of nature rule!

Through this new publication, Dag Kjelldahl's knowledge and understanding of this unique environment is now available to an international audience.
