Bears of the Last Frontier
By Chris Morgan
Hardcover, 244 pages

A print companion to the PBS Nature TV documentary of the same title, this handsome coffee-table volume chronicles the author’s 3,000-mile trek via across Alaska to observe and film North America’s three bear species (brown, black and polar) in their natural habitats. Filled with dazzling color photography and a running narrative of the TV crew’s challenges, it will instill a sense of wonder and awe about the impressive project itself, its magnificent, fearsome and often misunderstood subjects, and just how wild the Alaskan wilderness can really be. ($35)
