If you love anthropology and paleontology get this book. Amazing book about extinct animals that once were hunted by the innuit to survive this beautiful and remote place. If you love the arctic and history of a place thats coming in contact with future technology and its rush of people fascinated by this place get this book. You'll fall in love with the north pole.

I read this book over a decade ago and it has stayed with me, the most beautiful, 'poetic' prose I've ever read. Lopez' originality is his alone. I've recognized his style in various publications, and I recognize it before I know who the author is.

Never thought I would be interested in reading more than a page or two about ice, however I did not want this book to end. Barry Lopez carries the reader on a poetic magic carpet through a wonderland few are able to experience. Well worth the trip!

This book is incredible. The historical exploration of the Arctic is interwoven with the science of the region. Lopez has writen a wonderful book worthy of the praise it has received. The explanations of the forms of ice revel that of the best science writing. The books leads you to want to go to the Arctic.
