About this book

Explorer Bruce Parry takes an epic seven-month journey around the Arctic Circle - a passage of some 11,000 miles - taking in Greenland, Canada, Alaska, Russia and Northern Europe.

This full-colour illustrated book documents an important part of our world at a point of extraordinary change. Bruce tells important human stories with humour and warmth, immersing himself in the lives of the Arctic's people - fishermen, oil workers, native hunters, bush pilots, miners, fire-fighters, and scientists mapping the shrinking ice cap.

The book accompanies the BBC television series.
