In this beautifully produced, large-format volume, photographer Paul Nicklen unveils the soul of the magnificent Arctic. Nicklen has ventured to its most distant corners, and his work captures the incredible beauty and diversity of this vast land: caribou migrations and blossoming flowers in spring; sleepy walruses, nests of snow-goose chicks, and rainbows in summer; sparring polar bears and the dazzling aurora borealis in autumn; and ptarmigan, arctic foxes, and ravens in winter.
The superb images are complemented by the poetic text of Hugh Brody, who describes the six seasons identified by the Inuit, the true experts on the Arctic, and eloquently expresses the passion he feels for this unique landscape.

What more could one want? Photographer Paul Nicklen takes us on a magical tour of the Arctic, without our risking frostbite! Writer Hugh Brody adds just the right amount of narrative, without an attempt to compete with the photography. 'Seasons of the Arctic' is a rare coffee table book-- one that I looked at every photo in detail, and read every word. The image of the polar bear, silhouetted against the setting sun, alone makes this a worthwhile purchase! What a wonderful gift this would make to anyone who loves Nature.
