Pure essence of northern latitudes, spirits emerge to touch the deepest parts of one's sould--human spirits, fox spirits, the spirits of dwarf willows in bloom. The wind blows through them. Mountains and glaciers surround them. Shaped by time and terrain, personalities become apparent--curious, playful, intelligent, industrious, creative, strong. From the highest icy peaks throught multiple rich ecosystems to the coasts, the seasons sing their song. Light reflects their presence--individual spirits, inseparable from one another, forming one, integrated, living, breathing, and powerful whole. Over 200 original color images (northern exposures) from Alaska, Yukon, the Northwest Territories, and British Columbia.

Award-winning author/photographer Kathleen Menke resides in Haines, Alaska. In this book, she shares her portraits of spirits she has encountered in over two decades of exploring Aalska, Yukon, B.C., and the NWT. The longer she lives in the north, the stronger she senses the spirit in all that surrounds her--the land, people, animals, rocks, mountains, plants, wind and water. This is her third photo book of northern exposures documenting human relationship to the land and each other, gifts of the wild, and the spirits within.Review:
Outstanding. The theme of 'spirit' is well portrayed in this book. --Alan Traut, Docent, Sheldon Museum and Cultural Center
One of my favorite things to do is to slip into the wilds and sit quietly, waiting for the land to come alive with the sounds and movements of the birds and animals. This book allows the reader that experience and inspires us to spend more time seeking out and embracing those spirits. --Lyn Lauenroth, Haines, Alaska
Outstanding photographs. I like it that this book includes people as well as nature. --Gary Arenson, Haines, Alaska
