About this book

This is a celebration in word and image of the birds who return each year to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to nest--and how they link every point on the globe. 200 colour photos from award-wining nature photographers, Subhankar Banerjee, Steven Kazlowski and Arthur Morris are included. Essays by noted writers, biologists and conservationists, including David Allen Sibley, Debble Miller and former US president Jimmy Carter are provided. It offers life histories of individual bird species from every major group, including shorebirds, songbirds and raptors plus dramatic stories of migration and strategies for survival. It also includes an audio CD of Arctic bird songs.
