About this book

A passionate angler, Chris Tarrant's interest in bears was first triggered by sightings of grizzlies while fishing in the wilds of Canada. For years he harboured a plan to mount an expedition in search of polar bears in the extreme north of Norway, about 400 miles south of the pole, and earlier this year, with his 17-year stint at Capital Radio at last behind him, he put together a television crew and stills photographer and headed for Svalbard for 'one of the most amazing adventures of my life'. This book is a record of that trip, a homage to the power and beauty of one of the most ferocious predators on earth.
