Summary
"It's the last great wilderness--one of the least developed and most endangered regions of our planet. This full-color companion to a BBC2 series takes us on a seven-month journey around the Arctic with bestselling author Bruce Parry. Traversing Greenland, Canada, Alaska, Russia, and Scandinavia, Parry immerses himself in the lives of fishermen, oil workers, native hunters, bush pilots, miners, firefighters, and scientists--providing a human focus on the cultural and environmental upheavals that are shaking the Arctic today, and which are being felt throughout the globe."--Publisher
