Realms of the Russian bear : a natural history of Russia and the Central Asian Republics by John Sparks ( Book )
4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 293 libraries worldwide
The sheer size of the former USSR defies the imagination. It covers one-sixth of the total land area of our planet and embraces eleven time zones between the border with Finland and its eastern limits, which almost meet Alaska. Straddling Europe and Asia, this mighty country boasts a wealth of natural landscapes and wildlife worthy of its vast dimensions. Realms of the Russian Bear takes its readers on a safari which begins at the Volga Delta in the south-west, with its incredible numbers of wildfowl and other waterbirds, and ends in the Russian Far East. There the mighty Steller's Sea Eagle soars over the pristine coasts of the Kamchatka peninsula, a land of smoking volcanoes and huge Brown Bears, while further south Leopards and Tigers pad through the lush semi-tropical forests of Ussuriland.
