  • Join Seattle based writer of “Arctic Solitaire” and award winning photographer Paul Souders as he showcases his amazing photos and tells his incredible tales from a three year quest to photograph polar bears in their Canadian arctic home. Mountaineers Books writes, "A hilarious and evocative misadventure, Arctic Solitaire shares Paul Souders exploits across four summers, thousands of miles of a vast inland sea, and the unpredictable Arctic wilderness-and also offers an insightful look at what compels a person to embark on adventure. The accompanying images of the landscape, people, and wildlife of the remote Hudson Basy region are, in a word, stunning."
