In this stunning, large-format, panoramic photo essay, renowned nature photographer Florian Schulz takes readers on a personal journey to the remote Arctic. In contrast to the common perception of the Arctic as a "vast nothingness," Schulz's images display an ecosystem of surprising richness that is teeming with life. Following the cycle of a year, To the Arctic showcases a pageant of wildlife-oddly captivating forms of muskoxen, waves of migrating caribou, and some of the most extraordinary images ever captured of a mother polar bear and her two cubs. From expansive aerials of the rich reds and golds of the summer tundra, to stark landscapes of ice and amazing underwater images of sea life, Schulz's range of imagery, accompanied by his personal stories, helps us all understand that not only is this a place worth saving, it is the place that could save us all. Complementing Schulz's work is an evocative introduction by Seth Kantner, author of the novel Ordinary Wolves andthe memoir Shopping for Porcupine: A Life in Arctic Alaska.
