Alaska is a place that is known for its harsh beauty. Glaciers give way to winding coils of rivers and streams that feed into pristine lakes. Winters in the Arctic Circle can be harsh and unforgiving, but the summer brings with it some very surprising heat waves. The landscape is harsh, but it is home to an incredible range of wildlife. The series explores the seasons -- spring, summer, and winter -- and the way that they force the wildlife to adapt and thrive. Such animals to be seen are polar bears taking their first steps on the new ice of the season, a sea otter mother and its baby, and grizzly bears rushing to gorge themselves to fatten up.

National Geographic expeditions expert Casey Anderson leads viewers on a trek from the bottom of the Grand Canyon to the Arctic Ocean, and to many places in between, on a search for rare and endangered species such as wolverines, mountain lions, black bears and polar bears. In the episode "Wolverine King," for example, Anderson manages to forge a unique face-to-face bond with Jasper, a captivity-raised wolverine, to separate fact from fiction and learn the truth about these notorious carnivores. And in "Grand Canyon Safari," Anderson observes condors, rare Kaibab squirrels, tree frogs, rattlesnakes and chuckwalla lizards in their natural habitats.
