Description

World-class photographer and science writer Wayne Lynch takes us to one of his favorite parts of the world: the Arctic. Using a plant, an animal or a phenomenon for each letter of the alphabet, Lynch describes the unique ways in which systems for living differ where temperature and light can be amazingly extreme. But Lynch also dispels the myth of the Arctic as a perpetually frozen landscape by introducing us to the birds, mammals, insects and plant life that thrive in the short yet glorious sun-filled days of summer.

Editorial Reviews

Full of amazing photographs taken by the author.

— Toronto Star

Exceptionally fine photos, one on each page, illustrate the text. Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say to say that two or three paragraphs of text accompany each photo. In any case, the overall effect is of visiting an unfamiliar landscape accompanied by a knowledgeable and communicative uncle.

— Booklist

This is a fantastic book for teachers and students alike. It is written in an informative and easy-to-read style and is a definite must have for any library or classroom.

— Resource Links

Clear color photographs accompany each half-page-long profile. Balancing the familiar with the unusual, this book offers a broad look at the surprisingly diverse ecology of the Arctic.
