520    "Prime Arctic predator and nomad of the sea ice and tundra,
       the polar bear endures as a source of wonder, terror, and 
       fascination. Humans have seen it as spirit guide and 
       fanged enemy, as trade good and moral metaphor, as food 
       source and symbol of ecological crisis. Eight thousand 
       years of artifacts attest to its charisma, and to the 
       fraught relationships between our two species. In the 
       White Bear, we acknowledge the magic of wildness: it is 
       both genuinely itself and a screen for our imagination. 
       Ice Bear traces and illuminates this intertwined history. 
       From Inuit shamans to Jean Harlow lounging on a bearskin 
       rug, from the cubs trained to pull sleds toward the North 
       Pole to cuddly superstar Knut, it all comes to life in 
       these pages. With meticulous research and more than 160 
       illustrations, the author brings into focus this powerful 
       and elusive animal. Doing so, he delves into the stories 
       we tell about Nature-and about ourselves-hoping for a 
       future in which such tales still matter"--Publisher.
