Living With Polar Bears offers awe-inspiring stories from Arctic photographers, park rangers and residents. These tales culminate to paint a vivid portrait of how Man and the ice bear are learning to survive and thrive harmoniously in a changing environment. Some encounters are inspirational. Others are outright frightening. Sonny Voyce knows the power of polar bears. A giant bear tracked him down and clamped its jaw around his head. John Bykerk almost met the same fate. A hungry bear became trapped in the back of his garbage truck. They’re just some of the frightening encoun- ters featured in Living With Polar Bears.
