Bears of Katmai
Katmai National Park, on the Alaska Peninsula 250 miles southwest of Anchorage, is home to one of the largest brown bear populations in the world. Matthias Breiter spent over 15 years studying the bears in this area from den emergence, throughout the summer as they feed on sedges, and then gorge themselves on salmon until late fall when the snow starts falling and the bears retreat into the mountains to den up. In the course of the seasons, he came to know individual animals intimately. This book describes in spectacular images and poignant stories the lives of these monarchs of the Alaskan wilderness. Words and photos interweave to become a moving documentary, revealing breathtaking encounters from wrestling cubs, maternal displays, the industrious hunt for food, to battles for supremacy.
