Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Award-winning wildlife photographer Brandenburg To the Top of the World: Adventures with Arctic Wolves has a unique ability to capture the essence of a subject on film. Here he has assembled a breathtaking collection of images of life--both human and animal--in the desert realms of Namibia. His clear, tautly composed photos vividly depict a wide range of subjects, from the sinuous lines of shifting sand dunes to the results of a day's digging at a diamond mine, from the carefree splashing of seals in the coastal waves to a mass baptism by a Herero priest. But while the images speak directly and elegantly, Brandenburg's text is an unfocused combination of his musings on the elusive nature of the perfect photo, discussions of his professional career and florid descriptions of his wanderings, all of which ultimately detract from the power of the photograph. All ages. Apr.
School Library Journal
Gr 2 Up-Spectacular photographs are the outstanding feature of this book by a National Geographic photographer. During a trip to Namibia to cover the war against South African colonialism, Brandenburg traveled to the Namib Desert on the coast and to the Etosha Pan, a game reserve in the north of the country. From his pictures of the stark but beautiful desert and its array of animals, including the oryx or gemsbok, flamingos, giraffes, to ostriches against the rising sun, or elephants around a waterhole, each page is breathtaking. The text is woven successfully around the photographs, and there is interesting information about the adaptation of desert animals. The photographs of people and the accompanying text focus on cultural features such as the striking clothes of the Herero people, or an unusual group baptism where the priest spits water on his congregants. For browsing and incidental reading rather than research, this book will be enjoyed by children interested in natural history or in finding out about South Africa.- Susan Giffard, Midtown Ethical Culture School, New York City
