Hunting

The hunting scenes in this book are some of the best. They remind self somewhat of the scenes in Eddie’s Boy where the hit man main character stalks his targets. Anyhoo, Ice Walker: A Polar Bear’s Journey Through the Fragile Arctic has been a very exciting read.

It’s been particularly exciting since Nanu has become a mother. So now she’s hunting, not just for herself, but for her two cubs.

Nanu glides to a small pressure ridge in the ice, out of direct sight of the seals, and lies down to nurse. When the cubs have had their fill, they bundle in beside her, one on top of the other, and nod off to sleep. Effortlessly, Nanu slips into the lead. She surfaces silently like a slow-moving ice floe and begins closing the distance between herself and the sleeping prey.

When Nanu is within one hundred yards of the seal, he lifts his head. Nanu stops. All that shows in the water is a white forehead with black eyes and nose, and a line of dry fur along her back, all of which could easily be patterns in the ice itself.
