Planet Arctic: Life at the Top of the World

Wayne Lynch, Firefly, $40 (240p) ISBN 978-1-55407-632-1
With these dazzlingly hued color photographs, Lynch takes us north to the far reaches of the Arctic and reveals a rich landscape teeming with life. He offers intimate portrayals of arctic creatures—gamboling polar bear cubs, reindeer, loons, hares—capturing the vast splendor of one of the planet's last undisturbed places. Whether revealing an arctic fox on the hunt or the budding of mountain avens, Lynch's nature photos renew our sense of wonder at the majesty of the natural world with vivid, vital images that all but evoke the chill of arctic air. Taken collectively, these photographs and the author's sharp commentary and anecdotes provide an awe-inspiring glimpse into a wild world most of us will likely never know, an endangered world, Lynch warns in the book's final words, whose ultimate fate lies in our hands.
