Product description

Review

"The Arctic dreamland seen and described by a writer of rare perception and poetic descriptive power... The pages sparkle with Arctic light" (David Stephen Scotsman)

"A marvellous evocation of the Arctic by a naturalist, who is part poet... A magical book to read slowly and savour" (Gillian Somerville-Large Irish Times)

"Barry Lopez by some rare magic manages to combine a poetic vision with accuracy of observation; and although he writes mainly about Eskimos, polar bears, and other denizens of the frozen north, many of his perceptive insights apply the world over" (Paula Johnson Mail on Sunday)

"Dazzling... Treats the distant, snowy world of the Arctic as a place that exists not only in the mathematics of geography but also in the terra incognita of our imaginations" (Michiko Kakutani New York Times)

"By what comes close to sheer magic, the magic of a highly literate and perceptive naturalist, Barry Lopez has transformed the austerity and Sibelius-like gloom of the tundra and great ice walls into a living pageant of high latitudes. This book will become a classic within its genre" (John Hillaby) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description

Winner of the National Book Award in 1986, Lopez’s magnum opus explores the Arctic landscape and the hold it continues to exert on our imagination --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
