Taylor has smoothly organized essays by Bruemmer and five other writers who discuss seven countries in the Arctic circle: history, people, animal and plant life. Included are 130 shots in color, displaying the grandeur and austerity of mountains, icebergs and frozen seas, as well as the glories of blooms and natural wonders unique to the Northern fastnesses. Black-and-white photos, no less striking, introduce the reader to the Lapps, Eskimo families, kittiwakes, walrus communities, polar bears and other wildlife in their habitats. The book's unspoken but palpable plea is that the Arctic must be safeguarded and preserved from corruption. October 15
