The history of the Arctic is rich, filled with fascinating and heroic stories of exploration, multicultural interactions, and humans facing nature at its most extreme. In Finding the Arctic, the accomplished arctic researcher Matthew Sturm collects some of the most memorable and moving of these stories and weaves them around his own story of a 2,500-mile snowmobile expedition across arctic Alaska and Canada.During that trip, Sturm and six companions followed a circuitous route that brought them to many of the most historic spots in the North. They stood in the footsteps of their predecessors, experienced the landscape and the weather, and gained an intimate perspective on notable historical events, all chronicled here by Sturm. Written with humor and pathos, Finding the Arctic is a classic tale of adventure travel. And throughout the book,Sturm, with his thirty-eight years of experience in the North, emerges as an excellent guide for any who wish to understand the Arctic of today and yesterday.

About the Author:

Matthew Sturm is a leader in the Arctic climate change research community and has led over twenty-five expeditions in the Arctic and Antarctic. He is the author of Apun: The Arctic Snow, also published by the University of Alaska Press.

Review:

"Sturm is an Arctic climate change researcher who has made many trips to the North and can thus write with authority and depth about the history, culture, and environment of the region. . . . The book is handsomely produced, lavishly illustrated with historical and contemporary photographs. . . a must read for anyone interested in the North." (Choice)

"[Finding the Arctic] does an outstanding job of helping [readers] understand a bit of the history of the place, as well as offer insight into its current state. More importantly, it conveys a sense of why so many people have been inexorably drawn into such a forbidding land, sometimes at the cost of their own lives."  (David A. James Daily News-Miner 2012-10-20)

"Sturm has enthusiastically brought together a charming book that is entertaining and aesthetically pleasing to the reader. . . The book is a patchwork of contemporary stories, explorations of historical sites and events, and plain-language descriptions of fauna and geography, and it includes a beautiful collection of archival images." (Morgan E. Moffitt Arctic)
