    Breathtaking Images of the Top of the Planet

    Robert B. Haas is a gifted artist who is so skilled in his chosen realm of aerial photography that he is able to focus the unspeakable grandeur of our planet with a conviction of spiritual conscience that it is almost impossible not to react emotionally to his images. In this book THROUGH THE EYES OF THE VIKINGS: AN AERIAL VISION OF THE ARCTIC LANDS he has captured the geometric abstractions of ice floes, vast expanses of frozen tundra, icebergs, imperious mountains, the junction of the sky becoming both water and land, while at the same time discovering herds of wildlife in flight or in grazing or simply as part of the landscape as it reveals its secrets to the exploring animals. He dallies with the jocular humor of the great whales spouting, with the order of polar bears in herds, the many animals of the various locations he shares in a manner that introduces the viewer to a world we are unable to view.

    Spending time with Haas' views of mists and dazzling sunlight and reflective snow and ice light draws us into a relationship with the arctic like few other photographers have been able to achieve. The consistency of his art is likely the reason National Geographic has assigned him this his sixth venture (his like books include 'A Vision of Africa' (1998), 'Predators' (2001), 'African Critters' (2002), 'Ten Days on the Chobe' (2002), and the other National Geographic publications 'Through the Eyes of the Gods--An Aerial Vision of Africa' (2005), and 'Through the Eyes of the Condor--An Aerial Vision of Latin America' (2007).

    After the initial splendor of Haas' work comes the startling but undeniable that these spaces, these miracles of nature are endangered by our current abuse of our planet. If ever there were a illustration to put before the Environmental Concerns committees this book serves that purpose. It is magnificent art and a reminder we must maintain what haas has shared.
