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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, wow, wow! This book is a once in a lifetime collection. I can't imagine what the photographer went through to attain these images. The color, light and amazing animals have inspired me and my husband to visit the North country soon. I love the text too. I received it as a gift and now this book has made my own Christmas shopping easy.
