About this book

The culmination of more than 20 years' study by one of the world's leading natural history photographers. Rosing takes us through the year of the polar bear, showing the animal in its many aspects, from fierce predator to loving parent, against the background of an environment under threat.

Norbert's gift as a photographer is his great curiosity about the natural world. His magic is displayed in photographs that weave light, colour and action into a tapestry that tells volumes about life in the Far North." John A. Echave, Senior Editor, National Geographic Magazine Norbert's work reaches deep into the soul of the Far North and tugs at our heartstrings to inspire us to become better caretakers of this precious planet that we live on." Robert Buchanan, President, Polar Bears International Norbert Rosing is the best photographer of the Arctic working today. Art Wolfe, conservation photographer 'Sumptuous white-on-white pictures by a top natural history photographer who has spent decades redording Arctic wildlife.' Sunday Times (September 2007) 'This is not only a superb portrait of one of the world's most fascinating animals, but also a testament to his abilities as a photographer.' BBC Wildlife
