Arctic: Life inside the Arctic Circle by Claudia Martin
The Arctic may be cold, vast and beautiful, but it is also home to millions of people and animals. It is a region of extremes: extreme cold, extreme seasonal changes in daylight and extreme natural phenomena. It appears as an unwelcoming and hostile environment, but it is full of wildlife, from polar bears to beluga whales to snowshoe hares. Arctic is a fascinating photographic exploration of a region like no other. Be amazed by the natural wonder of the northern lights over the rugged yet enchanting landscapes, and see how humans live and survive in this hostile terrain that is now seeing rapid changes thanks to the rise in average global temperatures. See also how such activities as industry, tourism and research have changed the land. Presented in a landscape format and with captions revealing many fascinating but little- known facts about the history, climate and terrain of this frozen wonderland, Arctic is a stunning collection of 190 images.
