The great mountain ranges guarding the southern borders, home to the rare and elusive Snow Leopard, the huge Karakum sand desert of Central Asia, where wild asses roam across savannahs of pistachio trees, and the windswept steppes with their wandering herds of Saiga Antelopes are dramatically described from season to season. The author then turns to the cold icy coasts and islands and the huge expanses of tundra in the Russian Arctic, before visiting Siberia with its freezing coniferous forests and Lake Baikal, the world's deepest lake, where long isolation has produced a multitude of unique creatures. Illustrated throughout with superb colour photographs, Realms of the Russian Bear, which accompanies the six-part television series, is an unforgettable wildlife exploration of one of the world's most remarkable and least known regions
