|About the Book|
The Arctic is a land of ice and snow, a harsh world that seems ill-suited to young animals. Yet it is here that harp seal pups are raised. They must quickly learn how to fend for themselves, for in less than two weeks after birth they are weaned from their mothers and are forced to live on their own. Matthews and Guravich trace the life cycle of these fascinating animals who are true Arctic survivors. Full-color photos.
