This highly acclaimed six-tape documentary series is enhanced by exceptional cinematography and original music. Volume five, Realms of the Russian Bear: The Frozen Forest, journeys to Siberia, the greatest forest in the world, where spruce and fir cover a 6,000-mile range and the oldest and deepest lake on earth is found. Here, wolves, elk, deer, bears, and vegetation survive temperatures of 90 degrees below zero. Visit this frigid wonderland to learn how the flora and fauna thrive. Other tapes in this nature series include Realms of the Russian Bear: Celestial Mountains, Realms of the Russian Bear: The Arctic Frontier, Realms of the Russian Bear: Red Deserts, Realms of the Russian Bear: Green Jewel of the Caspian, and Realms of the Russian Bear: Born of Fire.
