This title comes with an introduction by Robert Macfarlane. Lopez's journey across our frozen planet is a celebration of the Arctic in all its guises. A hostile landscape of ice, freezing oceans and dazzling skyscapes. Home to millions of diverse animals and people. The stage to massive migrations by land, sea and air. The setting of epic exploratory voyages. And, in crystalline prose, Lopez captures the magic of the Arctic - the essential mystery and beauty of a continent that has enchanted man's imagination and ambition for centuries.
