About this book

From Nunavut and the Barren Lands of Canada to the westernmost edge of Alaska and back to Churchill, Manitoba, Pete Dunne's experiences in the Arctic comprise wilderness, laughter, and contemplation. Whether hunting caribou, examining the balance between the needs of molting geese and society's thirst for oil, or observing majestic but threatened polar bears, Dunne insightfully considers his own life, our interactions with the natural world, and the importance of the Arctic, the planet's last frontier.

"[...] Arctic Autumn may not be the best in this series (for me, it's still Prairie Spring), but it will inform, entertain, and – hopefully and most importantly – open your eyes a little to the natural world and your role in it. In other words: Arctic Autumn. Pete Dunne. Read it."
- Grant McCreary (03-02-2012), read the full review at The Birder's Library
