Author: Barry Lopez
Read By: James Naughton

In this modern classic, Barry Lopez explores the many-faceted wonders of the Far North: its strangely stunted forest, its mesmerizing aurora borealis, its frozen seas. Musk oxen, polar bears, narwhal, and other exotic beasts of the region come alive through Lopez’s passionate and nuanced observations. And, as he examines the history and culture of the indigenous people, Lopez drives to the heart of why the Arctic is a constant source of breathtaking beauty, beguilement, and wonder.
