  • Arctica

    The arctic, and in particular the North Pole, represents some of the last true wilderness on Earth. It's also in serious peril. It's with these two themes in mind that Arctica: The Vanishing North takes you on a journey through this pristine locale. Author Sebastian Copeland, who also happens to be the photographer as well as an accomplished polar explorer and activist, provides a perspective of the pole's beauty, charm, and current predicament that could only come from someone who's not only been there, but obviously cares a great deal about its future.
