Arctic National Wildlife Refuge: Seasons of Life and Land. (Books).


For the past 5 decades, politicians have considered drilling for oil in the Arctic Refuge coastal plain that encompasses more than 100 million acres of national parks, refuges, and forests in Alaska. The authors of this beautiful book hope to further deter this action by taking readers to where most will never visit. Banerjee's stunning photographs of the land and wildlife are juxtaposed with essays by some of the world's leading naturalists. Together, they define the region's biodiversity and importance as an undisturbed wilderness. The book documents the landscape, animals, plants, and indigenous peoples through all four seasons. Mountaineer Bks, 2003, 176 p., color photos, flexibind, $22.95.
