From the Back Cover:

A barren and inhospitable region for most of the year, the Arctic is permanent home to just a handful of hardy creatures. But come the summer, the wind stirs the waters to bring minerals to the surface, nourishing the plankton that in turn attracts numerous birds and sea mammals to these shores. For just a few short months of almost endless daylight, the winter inhabitants of the Arctic fringes are joined by numerous shorebirds and waterfowl, seals and whales, all taking advantage of the abundance of food before heading south to avoid the harsh winter.Tony Soper's lively text provides the perfect companion to an exploration of the coastal regions of the Arctic and its inhabitants. Enhanced by specially commissioned watercolor paintings, this book will bring added insight to those visiting the Arctic in high summer, and lasting pleasure throughout the winter months. (5 1/4 x 8 1/2, 144 pages, watercolors, illustrations, maps)
