In this stunning collection of photographs, Paul Nicklen unveils the soul of one of the worldís last great wilderness preserves—the Arctic. During his twenty-five years of living in the North, Nicklen has ventured to the most distant and untouched corners of the Arctic; his work is a celebration of this vast land. These superb images are complemented by the poetic text of Hugh Brody, who spent several years living in the North.

Together, text and photographs offer a fascinating glimpse into this rare and beautiful world.
