Kazlowski, a wildlife photographer, brings together about 250 color photos he took from the Alaskan Arctic over a period of eight years, with essays by anthropologists, nature writers, environmental activists, and others who cite the effects of global warming on the ecosystem of the polar bear. Essays discuss the political context, how the polar bear is quickly becoming a threatened species, global climate change, the relationship between the Iñupiaq hunters and the animal, and the effects of an oil-dependent world on the Arctic. Excerpts from his journal and an interview with an Iñupiaq elder are included. The book measures 10.5x12.5". Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
