Powder-blue boards with metallic-green lettering (clean and bright). Annotation Describes the geography of the tundra and the animals, plants, birds, and people who have adapted to life on these arctic plains. School Library Journal Gr 5 Up In this well-organized and clearly written overview, Hiscock's enthusiasm for his subject enlivens the facts he presents, communicating the essential bleakness and beauty of the Arctic tundra. He uses as a framework the cycle of the seasons, from winter to winter, detailing the lives of plants, birds, animals, and insects. Man's impact on the tundra is increasing, often as a result of oil and mineral discoveries. Nearly all of the tundra wildlife has been affected in some way. Here is information on endangered species, on hibernation, on the mysterious life cycle of the lemming. Readers will share with the author a trip through the barren lands of Canada, which gives the narrative a more personal touch. The chapter on ``People'' describes the specific areas of the tundra as home for different groups (for instance, the reindeer herders of Lapland). The bibliography includes both adult and children's titles, and the map, glossary, and index will aid students in report writing. Soft black-and-white paintings complement the text. Nonfiction at its finestclear, accurate, with quick access to individual facts through an index and chapter headings, yet interesting throughout. Ruth S.
