Críticas:

-The effects of climate change and development are barely visible in the images and only touched on in the text, but the stunning photos themselves, showing what we stand to lose by inaction, eloquently make the case for Arctic preservation.- --Natural History Magazine "The effects of climate change and development are barely visible in the images and only touched on in the text, but the stunning photos themselves, showing what we stand to lose by inaction, eloquently make the case for Arctic preservation." --Natural History Magazine

Reseña del editor:

In never-before-seen photos from the world s finest nature photographers, The Arctic introduces the reader to this region in three sections the land and sea, the rich biodiversity, and the native peoples and explores the challenges facing each in its rapidly changing environment. While celebrated in this volume, these stunning images are a dramatic and timely demonstration of the constant transformation of the Arctic at a most critical time. With accompanying essays based on real-time experiences by a National Geographic explorer, The Arctic celebrates the region s beauty inspiring dreams of travel while simultaneously sounding a call to action to save this distant world that affects each of us in countless ways. These photo-filled pages capture not only the massive sheets of ice glowing under the midnight sun, but also the Arctic s rich variety of other wildlife. Also featured are the many indigenous Inuit communities who maintain their traditional way of life amid this stunning and harsh natural setting.
