Summary
In his National Book Award–winning masterwork about imagination and desire in a northern landscape, revered writer Barry Lopez carries readers on a breathtaking journey into the heart of one of the world’s last frontiers In this award-winning classic, Barry Lopez explores the ways the human imagination engages with a landscape at once barren and beautiful, perilous and alluring, austere yet teeming with vibrant life, and shot through with human history. The Arctic has for centuries been a destination for the most ambitious explorers—a place of dreams, fears, and awe-inspiring spectacle. Based on Lopez’s years spent traveling the Arctic regions in the company of Eskimo hunting parties and scientific expeditions alike, Arctic Dreams investigates the unique terrain of the human mind, thrown into relief against the vastness of the tundra and the frozen ocean. Eye-opening and profoundly moving, it is a magnificent appreciation of how wilderness challenges and inspires us. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Barry Lopez including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection
