Chapter 10 – Face to Face with a Polar Bear

   Excerpt from Chapter 10 (Entire chapter is 30 pages)   

 

     One of the bears ambled to the side of the Tundra Buggy, I decided to go out to the rear of the buggy and meet him on the back open-air platform “OK bear,” I told him. “Are you ready for your close-up?” I established eye contact with him. Slowly, he sauntered over and then began to rise up on his hind legs. He was easily 12 feet tall. Leaning over the edge of the platform, looking directly at his face, I shot frame after frame of photos. He rose up closer. He was so close I could no longer focus. And then it happened.
